Liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker BW Boston has recently completed its first delivery of the chilled fuel following a massive refurbishment job in Spain.

To remind, the 277 meters long BW Boston left the Navantia shipyard in El Ferrol in July after getting a massive refurbishment as part of the vessels’ 15-year scheduled dry-docking.

The LNG carrier with the capacity to transport up to 138,059 cubic meters of the chilled fuel, is a part of BW’s LNG fleet and chartered by Engie for a period of 20 years.

In a brief social media statement on Tuesday, BW LNG, a unit of the gas shipping giant BW Group, said the vessel had completed its first voyage post-drydocking.

The BW Boston loaded a cargo of LNG at Trinidad’s Point Fortin liquefaction plant earlier this month and delivered it to the US Everett LNG terminal in Boston harbor last week, its AIS data shows.
