Nakilat has assumed full ship management and operations of Q-Flex LNG carrier Onaiza from STASCo (Shell Trading and Shipping Co. Ltd). The new management is to take effect from May 2017, as part of the planned and phased transition announced in October 2016.
With a cargo carrying capacity of 210 150 m3, Onaiza is wholly-owned by Nakilat and chartered by Qatargas. The vessel built in South Korea by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering was delivered in April 2009 and has been in service ever since.
Onaiza is the seventh wholly-owned LNG vessel that will come under the management of Nakilat Shipping Qatar Ltd (NSQL), bringing the total number of vessels managed by NSQL to 15 (11 LNG and 4 LPG carriers).
