Danish shipping company Evergas informed that Ineos Invention, the eight ‘Dragon Class’ multigas LNG carrier, has been named at Enterprise terminal in Houston.

The naming ceremony for the company’s final 27,500 cbm vessel was held on July 6, 2017.

Built at China’s Jiangsu New Yangzijiang shipyard, Ineos Invention was delivered in May this year to its charterer INEOS.

In 2013, Evergas ordered four identical vessels from two Chinese shipyards, Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering and Jiangsu New Yangzijiang.

The ships are purposely built for the transportation of ethane, although they can carry a wide range of petrochemical gasses and LPG.

“The ‘Dragon Class’ vessels are the largest, most flexible and advanced multigas carriers built to date. Strong relations, strategic focus and an innovative approach between Evergas & INEOS have been key elements that allowed for the creation of a seaborne pipeline bringing US ethane across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe,” Evergas said.
