Qatari LNG shipping company, Nakilat, has taken over the management of the Q-Max LNG carrier Mozah from Shell International Trading and Shipping Company (STASCO). 

It is the first vessel to be transitioned under the agreement signed between Nakilat and Shell earlier this month, Nakilat, the world’s largest LNG shipper said in its statement.

STASCO will be handing over the management of Nakilat’s fleet in three phases, starting this year to Nakilat’s ship management unit, Nakilat Shipping Qatar Limited (NSQL).

NSQL is currently managing four Q-Flex LNG carriers and four large LPG carriers.

Mozah, a Q-Max vessel wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by Qatargas, is the world’s largest LNG carrier in operation with a cargo carrying capacity of 266,000 cubic meters.

It has completed 55 voyages, covering almost 700,000 nautical miles, since it was delivered in July 2008, Nakilat said.
