Nakilat claims that this is part of the planned and phased transition that was announced on 19 October 2016.
The vessel has a cargo carrying capacity of 263 000 m3 and is wholly owned by Nakilat and chartered by Qatargas. It was constructed by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) in South Korea, and was delivered in December 2008. It has been in service ever since.
The carrier is the fourth Q-Max vessel that will come under Nakilat Shipping Qatar Ltd’s management in 2016. It will bring the total number of vessels managed by the company to 12 (eight LNG carriers and 4 LPG carriers).
