Qatar Gas Transport Company (Nakilat) has assumed full ship management and operations of Q-Flex LNG carrier Al Sheehaniya from Shell Trading and Shipping Company ( STASCo) with effect from 6 July 2017.

The transition is part of the planned and phased transition announced in October 2016, which will see 25 LNG vessels previously managed by Shell moved to Nakilat’s mangement.
