Friday, January 19, 2007
At a ceremony in South Korea, RasGas Company Ltd named another long term charter LNG tanker into their LNG cargo fleet. RasGas celebrated the launch of the ship at a ceremony in South Korea hosted by the shipbuilders, Samsung Hyundai Industries (SHI) at their Goje Island shipyard. Barbara Wolahan, wife of former RasGas Managing Director, Jerry Wolahan, was the sponsor of the ship. At the ceremony, Mrs Wolahan named the ship Ejnan after an island off the west coast of Qatar. The ship is the 11th LNG vessel to enter into long term charter with Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company Limited (II) and the 7th and last of the conventional sized ships to be delivered from SHI. Owned by the Japanese consortium (4J) and QGTC, the ship will be operated by NYK like its sister ship, the Lusail, which was delivered into service in 2004. The delivery of the Ejnan is scheduled to arrive at Ras Laffan on February 2, 2007. Source: The Peninsula
