The President and CEO of Höegh LNG Holdings Ltd., Sveinung J. S.

Going forward, we expect to record similar stepwise earnings improvements as we start operations under long-term contracts in Ghana, Pakistan and Chile. Our focus is to prepare for these contracts, whilst at the same time we are working to further expand our US$6.2 billion revenue backlog. We continue to operate in a positive market environment where ample LNG supply and competitive prices support FSRU demand as existing and new markets continue to import LNG, and we see ourselves well positioned to win further contracts owing to our leading market presence and solid operational track record."
