Eastern Pacific Shipping-led Cool Company (CoolCo) expects to fix two of its tri-fuel diesel-electric (TFDE) LNG carriers which will shortly come off-hire at strong rates.

Speaking during an initial first-half results call, new CoolCo chief executive Richard Tyrrell said the company is seeing an increased number of opportunities in the term market for TFDE LNG carriers.

He said one-year time-charters are “quite liquid” compared to what they have been in the past and CoolCo is “making the most of that”.
