AG&P Unveils Ultra-Shallow Draft LNG Carrier

The Philippines-based infrastructure solutions provider AG&P (Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company) has launched its ultra-shallow draft 4000 – 8000m³ liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier, capable of accessing rivers and shallow harbors with a draft of only two meters.

In a first for the rapidly emerging small-scale LNG infrastructure industry in Southeast Asia, the LNGC will serve as a ‘work horse’ for near shore LNG deliveries to locations that have limited access including shallow rivers and restricted harbors with low water depth.

AG&P said that the LNGC work horse has a hull design that reduces the waterline entrance angle and vessel resistance in waves. It can be ballasted in open water and does not need handling tugs.

The vessel cargo capacity is scalable from 4000 – 8000m³ with flexibility to travel near shore or take on LNG cargo from a floating storage unit (FSU) anchored offshore.

AG&P plans to finance and build the LNGC in 16 months at its manufacturing facility in the Philippines.
