Outline of Services
With experience accumulated in the energy transport field with LNG carriers and tankers, MOL takes a proactive stance in developing its offshore business, a field positioned for significant growth in the future.
The offshore business is typified by floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs) and floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units. Unlike typical vessels used to transport oil or gas, these facilities are moored in specific locations. The business model for MOL's offshore operations shares many characteristics of the company's LNG carrier projects. MOL continues to take an assertive approach to expanding in this field, in which, as the only Japanese company with a track record of operating both LNG carriers and FSRUs, we can effectively leverage our decades of experience.
