RasGas LNG Carrier Fleet Grows to 12

Thursday, February 22, 2007
RasGas’s LNG tanker fleet has grown to 12 with the addition of Al Daayen, built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co, South Korea. Al Daayen was recently launched at Daewoo’s shipyard at a ceremony in which Khalid Sultan R al-Kuwari was the main guest. The name Al Daayen comes from an ancient village on Qatar’s east coast. Al Daayen is the fifth LNG tanker to be delivered to RasGas from the Daewoo shipyard. Owned by the Teekay Nakilat Corporation, a consortium of Teekay Shipping and Nakilat, Al Daayen has an LNG cargo capacity of 151,700 cubic metres. Under the terms of the time charter agreements, RasGas will use the vessel for a period of 20 years to deliver LNG from its existing and future facilities at Ras Laffan Industrial Port to the company’s growing portfolio of customers worldwide.
