To develop new business opportunities in the fields of liquefied petroleum gas ("LPG"), liquefied natural gas ("LNG") and other liquid cargo vessel transportation management and associated businesses, China Gas Fortune Marine Transportation Limited, a new company jointly owned by Fortune Oil Limited and China Gas Holdings Limited was established in December 2017. The two 84,000m3 VERY LARGE GAS CARRIERS (“VLGCs”) ordered by China Gas Fortune Marine Transportation Limited from Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard were delivered and entered normal operations in May and July 2020 respectively. The operation of these two ocean-going LPG refrigeration vessels will strengthen China Gas’s LPG business across the international LPG supply and trading market, enabling it to capture value across the entire LPG trade value chain and obtain new competitiveness and development opportunities. This is a major new milestone in the development of China Gas's LPG business.
