Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat has taken over full ship management and operations of Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Ghashamiya from Shell’s trading and shipping unit.

The 217,591-cbm Al Ghashamiya is the eighth LNG vessel that comes under the management of Nakilat as part of the planned transition with Shell Trading and Shipping Company (STASCo) revealed in October last year.

This move brings the total number of vessels managed by Nakilat Shipping Qatar Ltd. (NSQL) to 16, comprising of 12 LNG and 4 LPG carriers.

The Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Ghashamiya is wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by LNG producer Qatargas.

The vessel was built in South Korea by Samsung Heavy Industries. It was delivered to Nakilat in April 2009.
