On November 29th another of the world’s largest Q-Max LNG carriers was delivered to Nakilat and Qatargas Operating Company Limited at Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard on Geoje Island.

The Nakilat owned 266,000 CBM LNG Carrier "Umm Slal" will be used to ship LNG produced by Qatar Liquefied Gas Company Limited (II), known as Qatargas 2, to customers in Europe.

The Q-Flex and the even larger Q-Max are a new generation of LNG mega-ships. The Q-Max has 80 percent more capacity than conventional LNG carriers with about 40 percent lower energy requirements due to the economies of scale created by their size and the efficiency of the engines. Q-Max LNG carriers are unique and purpose built for Nakilat and will be on long-term charter to Qatargas.

Qatargas 2 shareholders are Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil Qatargas II Limited and Total E&P Qatargas II Holdings LTD.
