Smit Lamnalco Performs First PNG LNG Berthing
Smit Lamnalco has performed the first berthing at the ExxonMobil-operated PNG LNG Project Marine Terminal near Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
In June 2012 Smit Lamnalco was awarded the 10-year terminal services contract with additional extension options. Following an extensive period of preparation and planning, Smit Lamnalco was fully geared up to berth the first LNG carrier, the Spirit of Hela, when it arrived.
Smit Lamnalco is focused on employing Papua New Guineans as part of the company’s crew. The crew will be trained by Smit Lamnalco at the maritime college in Papua New Guinea.
