Nakilat takes full control of another Q-Max LNG carrier

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

The world’s largest LNG shipper assumed full ship management and operations of the 263,300-cbm Al Samriya on July 27.

The Nakilat-owned 345 meters long vessel serves under a long-term charter contract with Qatari LNG producer Qatargas.

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering delivered the vessel back in February 2009.

Q-Max type vessels are the world’s largest LNG carriers and Nakilat has in total 14 such vessels in its fleet.

Al Samriya is the fourth LNG carrier that will come under the management of Nakilat Shipping Qatar (NSQL) this year.

With the new addition, the total number of vessels managed by the Nakilat unit increased to 23, comprising of 19 LNG and four LPG carriers.

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