Japanese shipper NYK Line signed a contract with EDF LNG Shipping, an EDF unit, to charter out a newly ordered liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.

NYK Line said on Monday that the deal is for seven years, with optional extension periods of up to 13 additional years.

The vessel has been ordered at the Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in South Korea and is due to be delivered on April 30, 2020.

LNG carrier will be fitted to EDF’s specific requirements and will have a 174,000-cubic meter capacity membrane-type cargo tank fitted with a GTT Mark III Flex cargo containment system and a dual-fuel slow-speed engine.

The engine provided by WinGD is a two-stroke large bore slow speed diesel engine able to operate on marine gas oil or boil off gas stored as a liquid at cryogenic temperatures.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
