Teekay’s second M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI)-Type LNG carrier began its service under a five-year charter agreement with Cheniere Energy on August 1. 

The 173,000-cbm Oak Spirit is Teekay’s second of nine LNG vessels with MEGI engines to be built at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea.

Teekay’s first MEGI LNG carrier Creole Spirit was delivered earlier last year and started shipping LNG under a five-year contract from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass liquefaction and export plant in Louisiana.

Oak Spirit LNG carrier has already transited the expanded Panama Canal several times with the first transit on August 21.

Following its latest pass, Oak Spirit made the first delivery of an LNG cargo produced in the lower 48 U.S. states to Japan.

The cargo was delivered to Chubu Electric’s Joetsu LNG terminal on Friday, January 6.
