Petronas has named three new energy-efficient liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels. These have been built primarily for deliveries from North America to its customers, ahead of the anticipated start-up of LNG Canada – an industrial joint venture to construct an LNG export terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia.

The vessels, built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea, each have a cargo capacity of 174,000 m3 and are the largest ships within Petronas’ multi-sized fleet of vessels.

Petronas’ Chief Operating Officer, Adnan Zainal Abidin, adds that LNG, being a key component for a just energy transition, is here to stay for the foreseeable future. With the arrival of these new vessels, Petronas reinforces its commitment to deliver this much needed fuel of choice to its customers in a cost-efficient and reliable manner.

With the strategic expansion of its LNG fleet, Petronas not only ramps up its readiness for the upcoming start-up of LNG Canada, but also underscores its commitment as a progressive energy partner providing lower-carbon solutions for its customers.
