Shell starts construction of LNG bunker vessel

Shell starts construction of LNG bunker vessel

Gas and oil giant Shell informed that STX Offshore & Shipbuilding has kicked off the construction of the specialized LNG bunker vessel with a steel cutting ceremony on Friday. 

The vessel, with a capacity of 6,500 cbm will be based at the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and will load from Gate’s new LNG break bulk terminal currently under construction, Shell said in a statement.

Once ready, the sea-going vessel will deliver to LNG-fuelled vessels in northwest Europe as well as other locations.

The Hague-based giant also informed it has signed an LNG supply agreement with Helsinki-based Containerships which will become the launching customer of Shell’s bunker vessel.

Containerships will charter 1.400 TEU container vessels, currently being built by Nordic Hamburg Shipping in China. The vessels will receive LNG fuel from Shell at the port of Rotterdam, after the LNG bunker vessel becomes operational in mid-2017.
