MISC Berhad (MISC), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Portovenere and Lerici (Labuan) Pte Ltd (PLL), together with its consortium partners, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K-Line) and China LNG Shipping (Holdings) Limited (CLNG), today announced that they have been awarded long-term time charter contracts by QatarEnergy for five additional newbuild Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carriers to be built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd.

Together with the seven long-term time-charter contracts that were secured earlier in August, this brings to a total of 12 newbuilding LNG carriers awarded by QatarEnergy to the consortium. These LNG carriers will be equipped with eco-efficient technologies such as X-DF 2.1 engines with Intelligent Control by Exhaust Recycling (iCER) System, which will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These 174,000 cubic metres (cbm) LNG carriers are expected to be delivered commencing 2025 and will serve the needs of QatarEnergy in the transportation of LNG to various countries around the world.

MISC’s President & Group Chief Executive Officer, Captain Rajalingam Subramaniam said, "We would like to thank QatarEnergy for their continuing trust and confidence in our joint capabilities and expertise in delivering safe, efficient and reliable LNG shipping solutions. We would also like to thank our consortium partners for the support and collaboration in making this award possible. We look forward to add value to the partnership as we continue to play a progressive role in the global LNG shipping industry.”

Captain Rajalingam added “In this evolving energy industry, collaborative partnerships are vital to ensuring success in fulfilling the growing demand for energy and achieving sustainable value creation for all our stakeholders. As we navigate the evolving energy industry ahead, we will continue strengthening partnerships to continue to build a progressive, sustainable, and successful future.”

MISC is one of the world's largest single owner-operators of LNG tankers with a distinguished reputation for overall operational excellence, reliability, safety and on-time cargo deliveries.
