Malaysian LNG shipping group MISC has taken delivery of Seri Cemara, a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.
The fifth in a series of five Moss-type LNG carriers, the naming and delivery of the 150,200-cubic-metre Seri Cemara took place at Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Ulsan shipyard in South Korea.
The MOSS-type vessels have been built with an integrated hull structure (IHS) that provides a continuous cover enclosure and shields four separate spherical tanks.
The Seri C-class LNG carriers can call at all major LNG terminals worldwide and have loading capability at floating LNG (FLNG) units.
Seri Cemara will join her sister vessels Moss-type Seri C-class LNG carriers Seri Camellia, Seri Cenderawasih, Seri Cempaka and Seri Camar on a long-term charter to Malaysia’s oil and gas corporation Petronas.
The delivery comes as MISC Chief Executive Officer Yee Yang Chien reportedly outlined plans to spend up to US$4 billion for securing more floating production storage and offloading (FPSO), and shuttle tanker projects.
This includes US$500 million for this year to cater for increased demand in the North Sea and North America.
