Source: PIN 9/4/2004, Location: Asia

TEHRAN -- Managing director of the National Iranian Oil Tanker Company (NIOTC) noted that the company was planning to build special tanker ships for carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Mohammad Soori added that the company intends to build 10-17 LNG carrying ships through investing 1.8-3.5 billion dollars.

"We are currently negotiating with big shipbuilders for designing big LNG-carrying ships as well as such oil majors as British Petroleum (BP), TOTAL, and Reliance," he noted.

Iran will be exporting LNG in the Persian Gulf by 2010 and is the sole regional country capable of simultaneous export of gas and LNG though sea and pipeline.

Due to the company's capabilities, Japanese companies including Mitsubishi and NYK Shipping Lines are interested in cooperating with NIOTC.
