The LNG vessels are partly operated from our offices in Haugesund and Madrid. We operate nine advanced LNG carriers, of which eight are on long-term fixed contracts of 15 years and beyond. The large vessels have long sailing voyages across the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean. Knutsen also operate the smallest LNG carrier in the world along on the Norwegian coast. This small LNG carrier is providing LNG fuel to many of the ferries on the Norwegian coast in addition to providing LNG to the industry.
The Product and chemical tanker fleet are operated from our Haugesund office and via Atlas in Bergen. These vessels are on spot or timecharter contracts and trading across the world and along the Norwegian coast.
The shuttle tanker fleet has since 2010 been operated and owned by the Knutsen NYK Offshore Tanker (KNOT). This is a 50/50 joint venture between Knutsen OAS and NYK (Nippon Yusen Kaisha) http://knutsenoffshoretankers.com
