K Line takes delivery of second Petronas-chartered LNG carrier

Japan’s K Line took delivery of the second mid-sized LNG tanker it chartered to Malaysia’s energy giant Petronas.

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua delivered the 79,960-cbm LNG Lagenda Serenity on Friday, according to a statement by the shipbuilder.

This follows the delivery of its sister vessel Lagenda Suria on May 26.

K Line chartered both of the 239 meters long ABS-classed ships to Petronas for a period of 12 years.

They will transport LNG under a long-term deal the Malaysian firm signed with China’s Shenergy Group.

The Wuhaogou-Max (W-Max) vessels are optimized for the delivery of LNG cargoes to Shenergy’s Wuhaogou terminal in Shanghai.

K Line also signed a shipbuilding contract with Hudong-Zhonghua for a third medium-sized LNG carrier in October last year. The LNG carrier is a sister vessel to the two ships with some minor modifications.

All of the ships feature WinGD’s dual-fuel X-DF propulsion and GTT’s NO96 L03+ containment system.
