LNG fueled vessels
The LNG carrier owner Flex LNG announced its extension of the time-charter agreement concerning the 173.400 cbm vessel, “Flex Enterprise”. According to the company, with this extension the firm period under the time charter will be until the end of the first quarter of 2021.
GasLog and GasLog Partners decided to assume commercial control of their ships currently operating in the LNG carrier spot market through The Cool Pool. The Cool Pool is an LNG carrier pooling agreement between GasLog and Golar, focusing on spot fixtures of up to 12 months in duration.
Serious technical problems with cranes slowed down the deployment of ESL Shipping’s new LNG-fueled bulk carriers, the Finland-based shipping company, part of the ASPO Group, stated. The problems in the conventional mechanics of high-power cranes, which are subject to warranty, have significantly interfered with the efficient operations of both vessels.
The Panama Canal celebrated a new milestone as three LNG ships transited the neopanamax locks last Tuesday 17 of April. Namely, the Clean Ocean, the Gaslog Gibraltar and the Gaslog Hong Kong transited the Canal, coming from the Pacific Ocean, heading north towards the Atlantic Ocean. Since March 2018, the Panama Canal has recorded a total of 134 LNG transits.
