India LNG Transport, a consortium comprising of three Japanese companies and one from India, has taken the delivery of a Petronet LNG-chartered tanker at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in South Korea.

The consortium includes Japan’s NYK, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, and “K” Line, and the Shipping Corporation of India.

LNG tanker Prachi

The 173,000-cbm LNG carrier named Prachi was delivered on November 30, the four-company consortium said in a joint statement.

The vessel joins Petronet LNG’s fleet as its fourth chartered vessel.

India’s largest LNG importer chartered the membrane-type LNG carrier for a period of 19 years.

Prachi will transport the chilled fuel from Chevron’s giant Gorgon project located on Barrow island in Western Australia to India.

The 295-meter long vessel will be managed by the Shipping Corporation of India.
