BW’s first MEGI LNG carrier starts work for Total
BW LNG’s first M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI) LNG vessel has recently started a long-term charter with French energy giant Total.
The 173,400-cbm BW Tulip started the charter with Total on October 10, BW LNG, a unit of the Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW Group said in a brief statement via its social media channels.
The LNG carrier is the first of the series of three sister MEGI vessels BW has on order at South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).
BW took delivery of the vessel in January this year.
