- Business & Finance
Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) signed a two-year contract with Qatar Navigation (Milaha) for the time charter of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) carrier Almarona to primarily transport ammonia exports from Qatar to Muntajat customers around the world.
The Almarona is a 23,000 cbm capacity gas carrier and is fully owned and managed by Qatar Shipping Company, a fully owned subsidiary of Milaha.
”In keeping with Milaha’s continued commitment to safety and the protection of the environment, this ship has been retrofitted with the latest available energy efficiency enhancing devices, which includes the Mewis Duct amongst others, together with the implementation of Energy Management Systems of world leading providers. This would definitely enhance the operational efficiency and lower the fuel consumption,” said HE Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al-Thani, Chairman and Managing Director of Milaha.
Earlier this year, Muntajat signed a two-year feedering transport agreement with Milaha to export Qatar’s production of polymers and melamine.
