Nakilat takes over first LNG carrier management from Shell
Nakilat has announced the management takeover of Q-Max LNG carrier Mozah from Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Limited (STASCO). This is the first vessel to be transitioned as part of the phased management transition. Mozah will also be the first Q-Max LNG carrier to be managed in-house by NSQL, which is currently managing 4 Q-Flex LNG and 4 large LPG carriers.
Mozah, a Q-Max vessel wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by Qatargas, is the world’s largest LNG carrier in operation with a cargo carrying capacity of 266,000 cubic meters. It has completed 55 voyages, covering almost 700,000 nautical miles, since it was delivered in July 2008.
