Published by , Editor
LNG Industry,


NYK has signed a sales and purchase agreement (SPA) with Total, acquiring all of the French company’s shares in the ship management company Gazocean.

Based in Marseille, France, and responsible for the management of six LNG carriers, Gazocean is now a wholly owned subsidiary of NYK. The move will strengthen NYK’s ship-management system and expand the company’s LNG transportation business in France. Before the purchase, NYK held 20% of Gazocean shares and Total held 80%.

The acquisition has been reviewed by Gazocéan’s employee representatives as part of the regulatory information and consultation procedure. It also has the approval of the competent authorities.

In accordance with its medium-term management plan ‘Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green’, the NYK Group is seeking to secure stable freight rates through long-term contracts, and the company will continue to encourage creative solutions in its effort to contribute to stable energy transport services.
