Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat said on Friday it has taken over full ship management and operations of Q-Flex LNG carrier Onaiza from Shell’s trading and shipping unit.

The 210,150-cbm Onaiza is the seventh LNG vessel that will come under the management of Nakilat as part of the planned transition with Shell Trading and Shipping Company (STASCo) revealed in October last year.

This move brings the total number of vessels managed by Nakilat Shipping Qatar Ltd. (NSQL) to 15, comprising of 11 LNG and 4 LPG carriers.

The Q-Flex LNG carrier Onaiza is wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by LNG producer Qatargas.

The vessel was built in South Korea by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering. It was delivered to Nakilat in April 2009.
