Owner and operator of liquefied natural gas carriers Teekay LNG Partners took delivery of the Oak Spirit, the second of nine LNG newbuilding vessels powered by M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI) twin engines, on August 1, 2016.

The Oak Spirit joined its sister vessel, the Creole Spirit, which was launched in June 2015.

Following its delivery, the Oak Spirit started its five-year fee-based contract with Houston-based energy company Cheniere Energy, lifting volumes from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility alongside the Creole Spirit.

Built at South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard, the Oak Spirit was launched in September last year.

Seven more vessels are being built at DSME – including the Torben Spirit. Earlier this month, Teekay said it has been considering to postpone the delivery of this vessel by up to ten months.

Two additional LNG MEGI newbuildings will be built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard, according to the company.
