MISC welcomes two new generation LNG carriers to fleet

KUALA LUMPUR: MISC Bhd has added two new generations liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers - Seri Damai and Seri Daya - to its fleet of LNG carriers.

In a statement, the world's largest single owner-operator of LNG carriers said the 174,000 CBM LNG carriers are equipped with smart and sustainable technologies.

Upon delivery, the carriers, built by Samsung Heavy Industries Co Ltd, will be on long-term charters to ExxonMobil's wholly owned subsidiary SeaRiver Maritime LLC and will be managed by Eaglestar Shipmanagement (S) Pte Ltd.

MISC president and group CEO Captain Rajalingam Subramaniam said the delivery of the two LNG carriers marks a strong start to the year and significant milestone in MISC's partnership with SeaRiver Maritime.

“This is a step forward in supporting a net-zero future as we add modern, energy-efficient LNG carriers to support ExxonMobil’s growing LNG business," he added.

Seri Damai and Seri Daya will add to MISC's fleet strength, which currently comprises 31 LNG carriers for MISC’s GAS Business, in addition to six Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLECs) and two LNG Floating Storage Units (FSUs), which have a combined deadweight tonnage (dwt) capacity of over two million tonnes.
