GasLog announces delivery of GasLog Shanghai



GasLog announced the delivery of the fully owned LNG carrier GasLog Shanghai, from Samsung Heavy Industries. The vessel was delivered on budget and ahead of schedule.


Immediately on delivery she commenced a medium-term charter to Methane Services Ltd. (BG Group).

The vessel is a 155,000 cubic meter Tri-Fuel Diesel Electric LNG carrier that sets new standards for efficient performance and environmental protection. The vessel is classified to the ABS ENVIRO+ notation, signifying the highest level of environmental protection and energy conservation. Furthermore the vessel is equipped with a new type of cargo compressors that will reduce the release of greenhouse gasses and offer enhanced cargo and heel management.

The vessel will be operated by GasLog LNG Services Ltd. in accordance with their Marine Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental & Energy Management system which in December was certified by ABS to be in compliance with ISO50001.

GasLog has a further four LNG carrier newbuildings due for delivery this year, as well as two in 2014 and one in 2015.

Indonesia’s liquefied natural gas exports may drop by a quarter this year as domestic demand rises and the country allows several contracts with overseas buyers to expire.
Whilst overall newbuilding interest subsided last year, the gas sector was one of the few areas to see contracting rise year-on-year and a record level of ordering was seen for LNG and LPG carriers in 2014.
Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has concluded the deal with Korea Line Corporation and Hyundai LNG for construction of four LNG carriers.
Golar LNG ("Golar") announced that it has been awarded 2 time charters by Nigeria LNG Ltd ("NLNG") to employ the recently delivered Golar Frost and Golar Crystal. Employment of both vessels under these contracts will commence in January 2015 and will continue for a duration of approximately 12 months for each vessel.
