Scope of the MOU

As per the MOU, HSG would be required to undertake research and preliminary engineering studies to upgrade the main engines of about 10 of Dorian LPG's VLGCs to dual fuel technology, utilizing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as fuel. This will help the Company to comply with upcoming environmental regulations for reducing sulphur emissions.

LPG As An Alternative Fuel

On September 20, 2017, Dorian LPG declared that it had engaged the American Bureau of Shipping to evaluate the use of LPG as a marine fuel, with regards to the International Maritime Organization (IMO)'s mandate to reduce sulfur emissions by approximately 85%, effective January 01, 2020. Dorian LPG's MOU with HSG follows the conclusion of this study.

Dorian LPG trusts the viability of LPG as an attractive and cost-effective alternative fuel. In fact, LPG has various advantages over other potential sources, such as LNG, methanol, and marine gas oil. LPG is inherently compliant with the IMO mandate. Besides, it is widely available due to the shale exploration boom, the existing global distribution network, and the onshore and floating storage infrastructure for LPG.

Therefore, the Company is proactively ensuring that enhancements in its VLGC vessels design permit the option of using LPG as a marine fuel in all of its recent building programs.

Deal to Offer Significant Competitive Advantage to Dorian LPG

John Hadjipateras, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dorian LPG, shared that through this initiative, Dorian LPG is taking up the role of a responsible corporate citizen, and, at the same time, is achieving a significant competitive advantage that would benefit its customers and shareholders. The cargo transported by the Company's vessels is an energy source with well-documented environmental benefits compared to other fuels.

Ki Sun Chung and Kwang Hean An, Co-CEOs and Presidents of HGS, expressed their pleasure on partnering with Dorian LPG. Both Companies have had a long-standing relationship and are working towards developing superior technology and alternatives for the global shipping industry in order to achieve compliance with important environmental mandates.
