A second M-type, electronically controlled, gas injection (MEGI) LNG carrier, the ‘Oak Spirit’, has been delivered to Cheniere Energy.
The ‘Oak Spirit’ joined its sister vessel, the ‘Creole Spirit’, at the beginning of August.
‘Oak Spirit’ is now operating under its five-year fee-based charter contract to Cheniere Energy, lifting volumes from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility alongside the ‘Creole Spirit’.
Both vessels are owned by Teekay LNG (TGP) which currently has seven more MEGI vessels of this kind in various stages of build at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering. Two additional LNG MEGI newbuildings will be built for Teekay at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard.
