K Line’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier Oceanic Breeze, sailing from Ichthys LNG Project in Australia, has made a maiden call to Japanese Naoetsu LNG Terminal.

The vessel is owned by K Line and INPEX Shipping, and dedicated for carrying 0.9 million tons of LNG per year from the Ichthys LNG Project in Darwin, Australia to the Naoetsu facility, operated by INPEX Coporation.

K Line also revealed its plans to be more involved in the shipment of LNG, LPG and condensate exported by the project.

Ichthys LNG Project would, in addition to LNG, produce around 1.65 million tons of LPG per year and some 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The project’s first LNG cargo was carried by K Line’s LNG carrier Pacific Breeze in October 2018 and the first LPG was carried by the company’s Grace River. K Line said that Aframax tankers, operated by its subsidiary in Singapore, would carry condensate products.
