The ABS-classed Methane Mickie Harper, a 170,000 m3 liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier for BG Group built at Samsung Heavy Industries, Co. Ltd., was recently named in a ceremony at the Korean shipyard. This completion marked the fourth and final carrier in the series. All four in this series are dual-fuel diesel electric (DFDE) propelled and use the membrane GTT Mark III cargo containment system. The first vessel in the series, the Methane Julia Louise was delivered in early 2010. The Methane Becki Anne, the Methane Patricia Camila and the Methane Mickie Harper subsequently followed and were delivered late last year. To date, ABS has classed a total of 11 carriers for BG Group. At the end of 2010, ABS had 32 percent share of the world's gas carrier orderbook.
