AET says Equinor-chartered DPST completes Gothenburg LNG bunkering ops

AET, a unit of Malaysia’s MISC, said its LNG-powered dynamic positioning shuttle tanker it charters to Equinor has recently completed its first bunkering operations in the Swedish port of Gothenburg.

Eagle Balder completed two ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations without interruption to the cargo operations, AET said.

Finland’s Gasum supplied LNG to the tanker via its chartered bunkering vessel Coralius.

Gasum has a supply deal with Norway’s Equinor to fuel the sister 123,100 dwt shuttle tankers, Eagle Blane and Eagle Balder but also other LNG-powered tankers which the energy giant uses for oil shipping.

Both of AET’s LNG-powered tankers joined Equinor last year after delivery at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.

The vessels serve Equinor on long-term charter for operations both in oilfields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, and the southern Barents Sea, as well as on the UK Continental Shelf.

Besides LNG, these two vessels also have an oil vapor recovery plant to enable them to collect and use liquefied volatile organic compounds, LVOCs, from the cargo as fuel.

The two vessels are part of a major renewal of Equinor’s fleet as the company is pushing towards “green” shipping and reducing emissions.
