Contract Details

This contract marks Centrica's second LNG carrier on long-term charter from GasLog. Paul Wogan, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GasLog, expressed his delight on signing this contract with Centrica. He also acknowledged Centrica's confidence in GasLog's ability to deliver high operating and safety standards. The Company looks forward to building its strategic partnership with Centrica.

LNG shipping has good potential, given the robust demand and supply fundamentals of LNG. Therefore, the Company is growing its fleet at attractive returns, and extending the drop-down pipeline for GasLog Partners. This will help the Company proceed towards its growth target set out at the recent Investor Day.

LNG Carrier Ordered From Samsung Heavy Industries

GasLog has already placed an order for 180,000 cubic meter LNG carrier (HN 2262) with low pressure two stroke (LP-2S) propulsion from Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea. The carrier is expected to be delivered by the third quarter of 2020. The rate of hire for the charter is consistent with mid-cycle rates.

Agreement Provides for Optionality

An important point to note is that GasLog and Centrica have agreed to an optionality clause for the actual vessel to be delivered into the charter. This implies that GasLog has the option to deliver HN 2212 or HN 2274 into the charter, instead of HN 2262. At present, both HN 2212 and HN 2274 are uncommitted, GasLog newbuild LNG carriers due for delivery in Q3 2019 and Q2 2020, respectively.

GasLog Partners' Option to Acquire the Vessel

Pursuant to the omnibus agreement between GasLog and GasLog Partners LP (NYSE: GLOP), GasLog Partners gets the right to acquire the vessel delivered into the charter. Therefore, the potential dropdown pipeline of GasLog Partners will increase to nine LNG carriers, with a charter length of five years or longer.
