N-KOM Achieves Operational Milestone

Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) recently completed its 200th LNG vessel repair at the Erhama bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard, Nakilat said June 11.

Chartered by Qatargas and operated by NYK LNG Shipmanagement, the 135,295 m3 vessel, Al Khor, completed general drydocking maintenance repairs and upgrades at the shipyard.

This is third time the moss-type LNG carrier Al Khor is calling for repairs at the facility, having previously been drydocked in 2014 and 2016, Nakilat said. In addition to regular maintenance, the vessel also underwent water ballast steel renewal and tank treatment, hull treatment, as well as several surveys and endurance tests during the drydocking period.

Earlier this year, N-KOM successfully completed its first floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) project for the 138,000 m3 FSRU Excelerate owned by Excelerate Energy. During its period at the Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard, the FSRU underwent routine drydocking and repairs, in addition to modifications and retrofitting of several new systems, including the installation of a ballast water treatment system (BWTS),
