Mitsui O.S.K. Lines held a naming ceremony for the LNG Venus, a newbuilding liquefied natural gas carrier at the Nagasaki Shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
“As a large group of guests looked on, Osaka Gas President Ozaki named the vessel, and his wife cut the rope,” MOL said in a statement.
The 155,000 cbm LNG Venus is co-owned by MOL and Osaka Gas’ wholly owned subsidiary, Osaka Gas International Transport.
After its completion, it will sail under a charter contract with Osaka Gas.
