LNG Vessel Named Maersk Qatar
The naming ceremony of the ship owned by a consortium of A.P. Moller and Qatar Shipping was held at Samsung Shipyard in South Korea recently. Maersk Qatar has an LNG cargo carrying capacity of 145,000m3 and will enter RasGas service by the month-end. Maersk Ras Laffan, the first A.P. Moller and Q-Ship vessel was delivered to RasGas in 2004. Maersk Qatar is the final ship in the series to be delivered to RasGas.
RasGas will charter these vessels for a firm period of 25 years to deliver LNG from the existing and future facilities at Ras Laffan Industrial City. (Source: Gulf Times)
