Nakilat Takes Control of Al Rekayyat LNGC
Qatari shipowner Nakilat has assumed full ship management and operation of the Al Rekayyat Q-Flex LNG carrier from Shell Trading and Shipping Company as part of the second phase of its fleet management transition programme, it said on September 20.
With a cargo carrying capacity of 216,300 m3, the carrier is wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by Qatargas. The vessel built in South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries was delivered in June 2009 and has been in service ever since.
Al Rekayyat is the sixth vessel to come under the management of Nakilat this year, bringing the total number of vessels managed by the company to 25, including 21 LNG and 4 LPG carriers.
