Liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker BW Boston has recently completed its first delivery of the chilled fuel following a massive refurbishment job in Spain.

To remind, the 277 meters long BW Boston left the Navantia shipyard in El Ferrol in July after getting a massive refurbishment as part of the vessels’ 15-year scheduled dry-docking.

The LNG carrier with the capacity to transport up to 138,059 cubic meters of the chilled fuel, is a part of BW’s LNG fleet and chartered by Engie for a period of 20 years.

In a brief social media statement on Tuesday, BW LNG, a unit of the gas shipping giant BW Group, said the vessel had completed its first voyage post-drydocking.

The BW Boston loaded a cargo of LNG at Trinidad’s Point Fortin liquefaction plant earlier this month and delivered it to the US Everett LNG terminal in Boston harbor last week, its AIS data shows.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.
