Nakilat continues LNG fleet transition with Shell

Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat has taken full control of another vessel from Shell’s trading and shipping unit as part of the second phase of its fleet management transition.

The latest vessel to come under the management of Nakilat Shipping Qatar is the Q-Flex 216,300-cbm Al Rekayyat.

Nakilat’s unit assumed full ship management and operations of the vessel on September 20.

Worth noting here, South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries delivered the vessel back in June 2009.

The Nakilat-owned 315 meters long vessel serves under a long-term charter contract with Qatari LNG producer Qatargas.

Al Rekayyat is the sixth LNG carrier that comes under the management of NSQL this year.

With the new addition, the total number of vessels managed by the Nakilat unit increased to 25, comprising of 21 LNG and four LPG carriers.

Nakilat’s total fleet stands at 74 vessels, including one FSRU and three LNG newbuilds scheduled for delivery by end-2021.
