Following Odfjell SE’s public announcement in May 2017 of its intent to sell, Odfjell Terminals BV, one of the ultimate shareholders of Oiltanking Odfjell Terminal Singapore Pte Ltd (OOTS), has completed the share transfer of its shareholding in OOTS to an infrastructure fund managed by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA).
In light of the transfer, the name of the terminal has been changed to Oiltanking Singapore Chemical Storage Pte Ltd (OTCS). Both Oiltanking GmbH and MIRA each have a 50% shareholding in OTCS.
