Thursday, October 25, 2007
LNG carrier “Arctic Princess” is seen leaving the Statoil LNG plant at Melkoya Island, Hammerfest, Norway, on September 20 with the first-ever cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Snohvit fields northwest of Hammerfest, Norway. GAC-Ole R Olsen’s Hammerfest team took care of the vessel from its arrival on Sept 10, the loading of its historic cargo, and departure from the terminal. “ARCTIC PRINCESS” is 288 meters long and has a fully-laden capacity of 147 000 cubic meters of LNG. The LNG is carried at a temperature of minus 163 degrees centigrade in four spherical tanks, each with a diameter of 42 meters. A full cargo load of LNG is sufficient to cover the yearly energy consumption of all households in a city with a population of 45 000 people. (Photo Credit: Courtesy of GAC)
