Oil and gas company Shell and gas carrier owner Anthony Veder have signed a deal to modify the LNG carrier Coral Methane into an LNG bunker vessel.

As informed, the modification marks the first of its kind and will entail integration of specific LNG bunker equipment into the vessel.

The 7,500 cbm vessel currently operates as a multipurpose vessel for Shell. Its modification will help meet the maritime industry’s growing demand for natural gas, according to Anthony Veder.

Modifications on the Coral Methane are due to start in early 2018. The Coral Methane is expected to cover LNG bunkering demands across Europe, operating primarily in the southern part of the North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

The ship is said to play a crucial part in developing LNG business for the two companies, especially by expanding LNG transport in the Norwegian area.

Last year, the Coral Methane was the first vessel to load at the new Gate jetty 3 LNG terminal in Rotterdam.

Built at Remontowa shipyard in Poland, the 6,200 dwt Coral Methane was launched in 2009.
