Jul 19, 2000 02:00 AM

Shell International Gas has ordered two LNG carriers from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan to assist the company in the start-up of an LNG terminal at Hazira, in the western Indian state of Gujarat. Each carrier would have a capacity of 135,000 cm and "will utilise the Moss containment system."
The carriers would be delivered in the third quarter of 2002 and first quarter of 2003. The vessels would be manned and operated by Shell International Trading & Shipping Company (Stasco). The 135,000 cm capacity is assessed at "98.8 % cargo tank filling ratio and at a tank temperature of 163 degrees Celsius".
The Hazira LNG project was awarded to Shell by the Gujarat Maritime Board. The LNG terminal will have a minimum permanent contractual capacity of 2.5 mm tpy (MTPA) which will be increased to 5 MTPA in two years. With an incremental investment, the terminal's capacity could be expanded to 10 MTPA.
