venture between Uruguay’s state oil company ANCAP and state power company UTE, to continue the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) project led by Gas Sayago. The government of Uruguay recently cancelled its contract with GNLS S.A., a 50-50 joint venture between ENGIE of France and Marubeni Corporation,and announced plans tocontinue the projectby using MOL’s FSRU. MOL also reached a basic agreement with Gas Sayago to go ahead with the project under the new project structure. In October 2013, MOL signed a 20-year charter contractfor anFSRU in the port of Montevideo, Uruguay
