We are a midstream LNG company engaged primarily in the transportation and regasification of LNG and the liquefaction of natural gas. We are engaged in the acquisition, ownership, operation and chartering of LNG carriers, FSRUs and FLNGs and the development of LNG projects through our subsidiaries, affiliates and joint venture.
As of March 15, 2019, we, together with our affiliates Golar Partners and Golar Power, have a combined fleet of twenty-seven vessels, comprised of eighteen LNG carriers, eight FSRUs and one FLNG. Of these vessels, six of the FSRUs and four of the LNG carriers are owned by Golar Partners and one of the FSRUs and two of the LNG carriers are owned by Golar Power. Most of the Golar Partners owned vessels are on long-term time charters. Seven of our LNG carriers, one of our FSRUs and two of Golar Power's LNG carriers are participating in the LNG carrier pool, referred to as the Cool Pool. Of the remaining vessels, two of our LNG carriers are on shorter-term time charters, the Gandria is being contemplated for conversion into a FLNG and the Gimi entered Keppel Shipyard Limited's ("Keppel") shipyard in early 2019 to commence initial work for her conversion into a FLNG to service the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project.
We intend to leverage our relationships with existing customers and continue to develop relationships with other industry participants. Our goal is to earn higher margins through maintaining strong service-based relationships combined with flexible and innovative LNG shipping, FSRU and FLNG solutions. We believe customers place their confidence in our shipping, storage, regasification and liquefaction services based on the reliable and safe way we conduct our, our affiliates' and our joint venture's LNG operations.
