A naming ceremony took place in Malta last week for a tug built by the Dutch shipbuilder Damen.

The tug named St. Angelo will provide port towage services and environmental assistance, and will also be able to serve the island’s LNG needs, by operating at Delimara LNG terminal, according to a Damen statement.

To remind, Malta started importing LNG in January 2017 via the floating storage unit (FSU) Armada LNG Mediterrana located in the Marsaxlokk Bay.

Damen said it built the new vessel for Tug Malta, part of the Rimorchiatori Riuniti Group.

The tug has been equipped with a gas protection system, double drum render recovery winch, firefighting system and oil recovery capabilities, the shipbuilder added.

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.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
