Nakilat, Shell start 2nd phase of LNG fleet transition

Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat said on Thursday it started the second phase of its fleet management transition from Shell’s trading and shipping unit.

Q-Max Al Mayeda is the first of seven LNG vessels that will transition to Nakilat’s management as part of a phased changeover deal.

To remind, the two companies completed the first phase of the management switchover back in 2017 transitioning ten LNG carriers.

Nakilat’s ship management arm, Nakilat Shipping Qatar will take over the technical management of ‘Al Mayeda’

NSQL’s managed fleet size will rise to 25 vessels by the end of the year after the transition phase completes.

Four of these vessels are liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers.

The 266,000 cubic metres Al Mayeda serves under a long-term charter with LNG producing giant Qatargas.

The vessel has completed 88 voyages, covering almost 1.11 million nautical miles since its delivery in February 2009.
