Q-LNG to Take Delivery of First Newbuild

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/17/2020, Location: North America

Quality Liquefied Natural Gas Transport (Q-LNG) is to take delivery of its first newbuild vessel from shipbuilder VT Halter Marine. The New Orleans-based company, owned by Harvey Gulf International Marine’s CEO Shane Guidry, expects to take delivery of the Q-LNG 4000 LNG ATB within a few weeks.

Once in service, the 4000-cbm ship will become the first offshore LNG articulated tug and barge in America. It is essentially an LNG bunkering vessel but it can be used a small-scale carrier as well. VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula launched the vessel back in October.

The vessel is under a long-time charter with a unit of the Hague-based LNG giant Shell that will use it mainly to bunker LNG-powered ships calling in the various ports in Florida.

These vessels include Carnival Cruise Line’s two newbuilds, and the Siem Car carrier duo chartered by Germany’s Volkswagen.

Worth mentioning here, Q-LNG has earlier this year secured an approval from US Coast Guard to move forward with construction on two variants of its design.

The designs, each for a 5,400-cbm and 8,000-cbm articulated tug and barge, are both variations of the current 4,000-cbm ATB design.
