The 135 295 m3 Al Khor vessel is chartered by Qatargas and operated by NYK Line Shipmanagement. It completed general drydocking maintenance repairs and upgrades at the shipyard.
According to the statement, this is the third time the moss-type LNG carrier has docked for repairs at the facility, having previously been drydocked in 2014 and 2016. In addition to regular maintenance, N-KOM claims that the vessel also underwent water ballast steel renewal and tank treatment, hull treatment, as well as several surveys and endurance tests during the drydocking period.
