Oslo, 23 August 2023
Following the reverse share split, which was approved in this year’s annual general meeting, the planned reorganization of the Company is considered complete. In parallel with the reorganization, we have continued to make considerable design advancements for the next generation of liquefied CO2 carriers. This process is progressing as planned. However, while we remain strong believers in CCTS’ (Carbon Capture, Transportation and Storage) ability to play a key role in the fight against climate change, we also recognize that the CCTS market is developing slower than expected. This is primarily due to lower than expected technological efficiency and cost challenges. Any significant ship requirements are likely to materialize in the latter part of this decade.
On a more positive note, we have made significant progress with another exciting project, which also is a strong potential climate change fighter, and we are currently in advanced negotiations with key counterparties and suppliers. We expect these negotiations to be concluded by the end of September. But, as always; nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.
