Norwegian scrubber-maker Bjornar Feen expects to see his assets in Norway unfrozen after the Oslo district court refused to recognise a Singapore judgment.

The Singapore order to pay SGD 13.2m ($9.5m) for shares in the former Viking Inert Gas (VIG) values those shares at 60 times more than any real loss suffered, according to legal papers filed on Feen’s behalf.

Viking Engineering, Feen’s Singapore-based Swedish fellow shareholders in the defunct venture, had taken their long-running Singapore legal campaign to Norway earlier this year and won a preliminary freeze on his personal assets there, as TradeWinds reported at the time.
