- Business & Finance
Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd. has extended its option agreements with Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (HHI) for the delivery of two FSRUs, that were to expire by mid December 2011 and mid January 2012, respectively.

LNG FSRUs receive liquefied natural gas from offloading LNG carriers. The installed regasification system provides gas send-out through flexible risers and pipelines to shore.

In addition to transporting LNG, the SRVs act as floating regasification terminals delivering natural gas to the market.
The Company holds a significant project development portfolio for both floating regasification as well as floating LNG production (FLNG). Headquartered in Oslo, Norway, Höegh LNG has established presence in Singapore, London and Florida. In total the Company employs about 70 office staff and about 350 sea farers.
