Technical and commercial innovation in addition to operational excellence and a competent and purpose-built organisation have made us a leader within the expanding LNG import terminal market. These factors will remain the foundation for long-term value creation and future growth, also within clean energy infrastructure solutions.

Who we are image


Höegh LNG provides cost competitive and flexible LNG infrastructure that form the basis for energy security and independence and enables the transition to a low carbon future. Our critical LNG infrastructure allows all countries with a coastline to access global LNG markets. LNG can be sourced globally and shipped through specialised LNG carriers, which provide consumers of natural gas with an abundant sourcing flexibility compared to gas transported in fixed pipelines.

We drive technological and commercial innovation in our markets and continuously seek excellence in our operations to maximise value for our stakeholders while ensuring the welfare of the key and minimising the impact on the environment.

We create growth and value by offering a solution addressing three megatrends affecting global energy systems;

Energy security is a top geopolitical priority, where all nations require a robust plan for capacity of supply to meet current and future energy demand

Cost of energy, including universal access to affordable and abundant energy

Energy transition and changes to the energy mix to decarbonise energy systems and minimise potential environmental and climate change impacts

Our strategic beliefs, direction and ambitions consider the impact of these megatrends on Höegh LNG as a company and our industry. They guide how we develop to reach our full potential and generate long-term value. We plan to grow our LNG infrastructure business and innovate clean energy terminal solutions for emerging markets such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), ammonia, hydrogen and other segments – all supported by our world-class operations.
