Eastern Pacific Shipping in 150th LNG bunkering op

Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping has completed its 150th LNG bunkering operation as the company’s fleet of LNG-powered vessels continues to increase.

The firm said in a social media post on Monday that the milestone LNG bunkering operation took place at Yangshan, Shanghai.

EPS said that during the operation its managed 15,000 teu LNG dual-fuel vessel, CMA CGM Bali, received 9,498 cbm of LNG from the 20,000-cbm bunkering vessel, Hai Gang Wei Lai, owned by SIPG Energy Service (SSES).

The 2021-built LNG-powered containership serves French shipping giant CMA CGM under a charter deal.

EPS completes its first LNG bunkering operations in November 2020, the 50th operation in September 2022, and the 100th operation in June 2023.

“To date, we have cumulatively received 404,958MT of LNG over our fleet of DF vessels,” it said.

The firm has a large fleet of LNG-powered vessels, including containerships, tankers, bulkers, and pure car and truck carriers.

EPS recently booked two more LNG-powered PCTCs at China Merchants Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing.

EPS ordered in total 12 LNG-powered PCTS at CMJL (Nanjing), and it recently took delivery of the third vessel from the yard.
