Managing Ship-to-Ship transfer operations

EXMAR Ship Management is a pioneer in managing LNG Ship-to-Ship (STS) transfer operations since it performed the first ever operation back in August 2006 between 138,000-cbm Excalibur and 138,000-cbm regasification vessel Excelsior. We successfully performed the first commercial LNG STS transfer ever from one vessel to another at sea at Scapa Flow off the Orkney Islands in 2007 and are at about 1,300 transfers without incidents since then.

Managing Floating Storage, Regasification & Liquefaction


EXMAR Ship Management expertly manages LNG Regasification vessels (LNG RV) as well as Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU). We are market leader in managing regasification units, with about fifty percent of the world fleet under management. We operate and maintain 10 permanent shore-based and offshore FSRUs 24/7.

EXMAR Ship Management has also supervised the delivery and commissioning one of the world’s first floating liquefaction units and barge and has crew ready to manage it, allowing us to cover the entire LNG value chain from liquefaction to regasification offshore.

Managing one of the most modern midsize LPG fleets

Our LPG Business Units manages one of the most modern midsize LPG fleets in the world. EXMAR has lead the way in LPG midsize vessel innovations since 1983, pioneering no less than 6 separate ship designs in this class over the last thirty years. These designs have been based on the operational experience at sea of EXMAR Ship Management’s captains and crew. The newest vessels incorporate energy-efficient hull designs, the latest ballast water treatment and scrubber systems as well as engine and deck designs capable of being retrofitted to run on alternative fuels.
