Australia-based marine towage services provider KT Maritime, a joint venture of Kotug International and Teekay Shipping Australia, named RT Kuri Bay and RT Roebuck Bay, two Infield Support Vessels (ISVs), at ASL Shipyards in Singapore on November 9, 2016. 

The ISVs are purpose-built tugs that will support Shell’s floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility Prelude.

The 1,195 gross ton vessels feature a length of 42 meters and a width of 16 meters each.

Prelude is the world’s first FLNG project and will produce and export LNG off the coast of Australia.

The facility will be located in the Prelude and Concerto gas fields in the Browse LNG Basin, 200 kilometres off the coast of Australia.

Together with RT Beagle Bay, a third ISV which was completed earlier this year, the vessels will be employed to manoeuvre LNG and LPG carriers alongside the Prelude, as well as assist with condensate offtakes, emergency response and personnel transfer, according to Kotug.
