Qatar’s Nakilat, the world’s largest LNG shipper, signed a contract with Global Eagle Entertainment’s Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) service to provide marine VSAT services for its LNG and LPG fleet. 

Under the contract, EMC will supply global Ku-band VSAT connectivity and content to enable a range of internet, data and voice services for the vessels and crew, Nakilat said in a statement on Monday.

The installations were completed recently on eight Nakilat vessels ensuring continuous connectivity for their ships sailing global routes.

In a separate statement, Nakilat informed that Standard & Poor’s (S&P), the rating agency, has reaffirmed Nakilat’s long-term corporate credit rating as ‘AA-’ with a stable outlook.

The rating agency also revised Nakilat’s liquidity profile from adequate to strong.
