Tor Olav Troim-controlled Golar LNG is on the brink of seeing the company’s second conversion of an LNG carrier to a floating production unit depart Singapore for West Africa.

Golar chief executive Karl Fredrik Staubo told TradeWinds that the floating LNG carrier Gimi will shortly leave Seatrium’s shipyard and head to its mega-yard — the former Sembawang Shipyard — where it will go out for sea trials.
