CNOOC’s new LNG bunkering vessel wraps up first op

CNOOC’s new LNG bunkering vessel, Hai Yang Shi You 302, has completed its first operation in China’s Ningbo-Zhoushan port.

According to a statement by CNOOC, China’s first river-sea LNG bunkering vessel completed its maiden bunkering operation at the Meishan port area of the Ningbo-Zhoushan port on July 1.

During the operation, the 12,000-cbm Hai Yang Shi You 302 delivered LNG to Matson Navigation’s LNG-powered containership, Daniel K. Inouye.

In April this year, China’s Nantong CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering delivered this LNG bunkering vessel to CNOOC.

CCS-classed Hai Yang Shi You 302 is 132.9 meters long and 22 meters wide and has a draft of 11.8 meters.

The vessel features an electric power system and two type C tanks each with a capacity of some 6,000 cbm, and can work on rivers and seas.

It is part of the strategy for the “gasification of the Yangtze river”.

CNOOC now has two operational LNG bunkering vessels.

In January this year, CNOOC completed another bunkering operation with the 30,000-cbm, Hai Yang Shi You 301, to Matson’s Daniel K. Inouye in Ningbo.

CNOOC claims this is the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel and it completed the first operation with this vessel in January last year.

In November 2022, CSSC’s Guangzhou Shipyard International (GSI) converted this 184.7 meters long LNG carrier with Wartsila DF engines and TGE Marine type C tanks to enable it to perform ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations.

The converted vessel has a capacity to deliver up to 1650 cbm of LNG per hour during an STS operation, while Hai Yang Shi You 302 can deliver up to 2,000 cbm of LNG per hour.
