New Carrier to Transport Cargo from Cameron LNG

Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) has unveiled plans to deploy a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier for its Cameron LNG project in the United States.

Featuring 165,000 cbm, the LNG carrier will be owned by Diamond LNG Shipping 3 Pte. Ltd. (DLS-3), a ship-owning joint venture formed between MC, Toho LNG Shipping Co., Ltd. (TLS)1, Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. (THG) and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK).

The vessel, currently under construction at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Shipbuilding’s yard, is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

Following delivery, the LNG carrier will transport LNG produced at the Cameron project to Japanese Toho Gas and Tohoku Electric through Mitsubishi Corporation’s Singapore-based energy business subsidiary, Diamond Gas International.

MC said that it “will continue to strengthen its LNG carrier business through projects of this nature as part of its efforts to help ensure stable energy supplies to Japan and other markets.”
