French utility GDF Suez SA Wednesday said it has taken delivery of two new-built liquefied natural gas carriers that it plans to use to ship gas from the Yemen LNG project. MAIN FACTS: - Two new-built LNG carriers, BW GDF Suez Brussels and BW GDF Suez Paris, were delivered to GDF Suez in the framework of a long-term charter contract.

Both vessels were built in Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Shipyard at Goeje Island, South Korea, and are owned and operated by BW Gas.

- The vessels are expected to be used to take cargoes from the Yemen LNG project, where GDF Suez has a contract to buy 2.55 million metric tons of LNG per annum.

From the first quarter of 2010, and for a 3-year period, BW GDF Suez Brussels will be used as Floating Storage Unit (FSU) for the Group's fast-track LNG receiving terminal project in Mejillones, Chile.

These two vessels bring the Group's fleet up to 15 LNG carriers.

- Within the next ten months, GDF Suez will receive three additional new-built ships under long-term charters, of which two are Shuttle and Regasification Vessels, to reinforce GDF Suez shipping capacity and pursue the expansion of its LNG business.

- Fitted with Gaztransport & Technigaz' reinforced NO96 cargo containment system and offering 162,400 cubic metres of cargo-carrying capacity at 100% volume, BW GDF Suez Brussels and BW GDF Suez Paris are the largest LNG carriers of GDF Suez' fleet.
