Photos: World’s Second MEGI-Type LNG Carrier Delivered

On August 1, 2016, the Oak Spirit was successfully delivered to Cheniere Energy. Since then, the vessel has begun her maiden voyage under the command of Captain Matthew Sumner.

Oak Spirit is now operating under its 5-year fee-based charter contract to Cheniere Energy, lifting volumes from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility alongside the Creole Spirit.

The successful delivery from the yard and commencement of charter contracts of this vessel is an important milestone for Teekay LNG Partners (TGP) as we continue to focus on executing on our committed growth projects. We currently have seven more vessels of this kind in various stages of build at DSME – including the Torben Spirit. Two additional LNG MEGI newbuildings will be built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard.
