Nakilat boosts fleet to 74 vessels with new LNG delivery

Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat said it has taken delivery of a newbuild carrier, boosting its fleet to 74 vessels.

Built by South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), this is the fourth LNG newbuild carrier to join Nakliat’s joint venture Global Shipping,

Nakilat holds 60 percent and Greece’s Maran Ventures, led by Maria Angelicoussis, holds 40 percent in the JV.

The delivery of the 174,000-cbm vessel, Global Sealine, follows three sister vessels that were handed over between 2020-2021.

In addition, it is the second vessel with X-DF propulsion system to join the Nakilat fleet following the delivery of the 173,400-cbm Global Sea Spirit in October last year.

As the previous LNG carrier, this vessel would also serve a unit of US LNG player Cheniere, Nakilat said.

According to the statement, the delivery of the newbuild LNG carrier brings Nakilat fleet to 74 vessels, which is about 12 percent of the current global fleet based on carrying capacity.

This includes 69 LNG carriers, one FSRU, and four LPG carriers.

Nakilat Shipping Qatar (NSQL) will manage this newbuild LNG carrier. It currently manages and operates 25 LNG carriers, including the LPG carriers and the FSRU.
