Three new LNG vessels in 2006

Shell and Golar LNG sign a five-year agreement for the time charter of three gas carriers. Shell Tankers will charter the 2004 built "Golar Viking" and the new builds "Golar Asia" and hull 2234, wich will be delivered in 2006. In line with Shell tradition, the ships will be renamed after sea shells: "Gracilis", "Grandis" and "Granosa".
