As part of the transition, Nakilat has assumed full ship management and operations of Q-Flex Al Sadd starting August 13.

The Doha-based shipping firm owns the 210,200-cbm Al Sadd serving under a long-term charter with LNG producing giant Qatargas.

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering delivered the vessel back in September 2011.

Furthermore, Al Sadd is the fifth LNG vessel that comes under the management of Nakilat’s shipping unit NSQL this year.

This brings the total number of vessels managed by NSQL to 24, comprising of 20 LNG and 4 LPG carriers.
