LNGSTS, a unit of Teekay Tankers, has closed the year 2019 with a record number of 112 open water LNG ship-to-ship cargo transfers. 

From November 2018, until July 2019, LNGSTS was the technical and manpower service provider for the largest ever LNG ship-to-ship project, located in Honningsvag, Norway, the company said in a statement.

Under the Arctic conditions, LNGSTS completed 123 STS operations from 11 different ARC7 vessels to 14 different conventional LNG carriers at 3 different anchorages simultaneously, during the said period.

In addition to the provision of the STS services, LNGSTS also developed the terminal operations and safety manual and specific STS equipment maintenance manual as well as carrying out the required compatibility studies for all vessels utilizing the offshore transshipment terminal, ensuring that the optimal fender and mooring arrangements were utilized during the operations.

The company said that its mooring masters and superintendents coordinated all transfers to guarantee that all equipment is set up and operated safely and that all procedures were followed correctly.
