Awilco LNG pay-out

Free Read

Nov 15 (LNGJ) – Awilco LNG, the Norwegian shipping company with the smallest fleet in the business numbering two vessels, said the 156,000 cubic metres capacity carrier “WilForce” had completed repairs at a shipyard in Singapore after it was involved in a collision with another ship off the Asian city-state on May 30, 2019. “Loss-of-hire insurance of US$65,000 per day compensated for some of the lost time-charter hire in the period,” said Awilco.

   “Awilco LNG has a substantial claim towards the ship responsible for the collision. Settlement and collection of the claim is expected to take some time,” added the company. Awilco made its statement as it reported a narrowed loss of $1.1 million in the third quarter compared with $11.4M of losses in the same three months a year ago and a $8.6M loss in the second quarter of 2019. Awilco said its second carrier, the 156,000 cubic metres capacity “WilPride”, was chartered in July 2019 to an oil and gas major for eight months until March 2020.
