K Line’s mid-sized LNG tanker wraps up gas trials in China

The 79,960-cbm LNG carrier Lagenda Suria, owned by K Line and chartered by Petronas, has completed its gas trials in China and is almost ready for delivery.

China’s Hudong-Zhonghua said in a statement on Thursday the mid-sized vessel had finished its trials.

According to its AIS data provided by VesselsValue, the vessel returned to Hudong’s Changxing base on March 5.

The vessel left the yard in late February. Prior to that, it completed its sea trials in January.

Hudong is expected to deliver this 239 meters long ABS-classed LNG carrier in the coming weeks. Its sister vessel, Legenda Serenity, should join later this year as well.

K-Line chartered both of the 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.

Furthermore, the Wuhaogou-Max (W-Max) vessels will be optimized for the delivery of LNG cargoes to Shenergy’s Wuhaogou terminal in Shanghai.

K Line also signed a shipbuilding contract with Hudong for a third medium-sized LNG carrier in October last year, sources told LNG Prime.

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.
