First Sovcomflot’s Atlanticmax Type LNG Carrier Launched

STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co.Ltd. has launched the first of two ice class LNG carriers ordered by Sovcomflot OJSC under a long-term agreement with Shell, said Sovcomflot in its press release. The first vessel is to be delivered in late 2014, the second one – in early 2015.

State-of-the-art gas carriers of Atlanticmax type are fitted with the equipment needed for operation in low temperatures that will provide for round-the-year transportation of gas from all existing LNG terminals to the global market.

As of today, gas fleet of Sovcomflot consists of 10 LNG and LPG deployed for Russian and international projects (Sakhalin-2, Tangguh). Besides, 4 gas carriers are being built under long-term time-charter agreements with the largest oil and gas companies – Shell and Gazprom.
