Shell to Put Teekay's LNG Newbuildings to Work

Teekay LNG Partners L.P. and Royal Dutch Shell plc (Shell) have entered into time-charter contracts for five newbuild LNG carriers.

The vessels will operate as part of Shell’s global LNG fleet under time-charters ranging in duration from six to eight years, plus extension options. Delivery of the vessels will start from the second half of 2017 into 2018.

Dr. Grahaeme Henderson, Vice President of Shell Shipping & Maritime, said: “The new tonnage will give Shell’s upstream and trading operations added flexibility in taking gas to market. We look forward to welcoming these cutting-edge MEGI engine vessels into our LNG fleet which is one of the largest and most technically advanced in the world.”

The new time-charter contracts with Shell will be serviced by five 173,400 cubic meter MEGI (M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection) engine LNG newbuildings built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd., (DSME) of South Korea.

“This accretive transaction both builds on our strong existing relationship with Shell and represents another milestone for the adoption of fuel-efficient MEGI-propelled LNG carriers as Shell will be among the first of the energy majors to bring MEGI vessels into its fleet,” said Peter Evensen, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC.
