MISC takes delivery of Seri Camellia LNG carrier

Malaysian LNG shipper MISC, a unit of energy giant Petronas said it has named and taken delivery of the 150,200-cbm LNG newbuild, the Seri Camellia at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard.

The Seri Camellia is the first of five MOSS-type LNG carriers ordered at Hyundai Heavy Industries, MISC said in its statement, adding that, upon delivery, the carriers will be chartered to Petronas for the next 15 years.

The five vessels are part of the new generation of the Seri C class LNG fleet comprising MOSS-type vessels, MISC said. The carriers feature the Integrated Hull Structure (IHS) with four spherical tanks shielded by the continuous cover, which improves the overall structural strength of the hull.

MISC is expanding its fleet to cater to the energy transportation needs of Petronas.

Following the completion of the naming ceremony, the vessel set out on its maiden voyage from South Korea to Bintulu, Malaysia.

With its delivery, MISC’s LNG fleet grew to 26 vessels, while the remaining carriers currently under construction in South Korea will be completed on a staggered basis and delivered to MISC in due course.
