In light of the ongoing Covid-19 virus situation, Höegh LNG has provided an update on how the LNG transportation company is dealing with the challenges.

It has implemented a number of mitigating measures to secure the health and safety of its employees and ensuring safe and continued operations for its customers. The company’s crisis management plan has been activated, and a Covid-19 task force, reporting direct to the CEO, has been established to monitor  the situation and perform relevant risk assessment on a continuous basis. A work-from-home policy has been implemented for all onshore employees on a worldwide basis.

A 'Lock down' has been introduced on all vessels, with no crew rotation and no visitors allowed onboard until further notice.

Currently, there are no known cases of corona virus infection for any employees onboard or on shore, with all FSRUs and LNGCs in the fleet fully operational and manned according to relevant safety requirements.

President & CEO of Höegh LNG Sveinung J.S. Støhle said: “Höegh LNG is managing this unprecedented crisis in an efficient manner first and foremost thanks to the tremendous efforts by all the people working in our organisation, but also because the company has a robust crisis management system in place supported by modern IT solutions. All our assets are operating according to contracts and we are in close dialogue with all our customers to make sure any issues are addressed in a coordinated manner. Despite the Covid-19 crisis, the LNG markets are functioning more or less as normal and commercial activities are making progress. Even with major populations being quarantined countries around the world need energy and electricity to function, where low priced LNG and flexible LNG is an attractive solution.”
