RasGas has expanded its LNG fleet with the recent launch of two vessels at Daewoo’s shipbuilding yard in South Korea, GulfTimes reports. With the addition of Al Marrouna and Al Areesh, RasGas’ LNG fleet strength will go up to 10. The two ships, owned by Teekay Nakilat Corporation, a consortium between Teekay Shipping and Nakilat, will have a cargo carrying capacity of 151,700m3 each. They will be on a long-term time charter with RasGas. Al Marrouna and Al Areesh will be the largest RasGas ships delivered to date. The ships will ferry LNG to the European and Far Eastern markets. Al Marrouna will be delivered to RasGas on October 31 followed by Al Areesh on January 2. Both ships will be operated by Teekay Shipping. Under the terms of the time charter agreements, RasGas will charter these vessels for a firm period of 20 years to deliver LNG from its existing and future facilities at Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLC) to its growing portfolio of customers around the world. Meanwhile, a formal ceremony was held at the Daewoo Shipyard to name the two vessels. source: Gulf Times
