China’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel renovation project kicked off on Tuesday (2 August) at Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard, according to several local reports. 

After the transformation, Hai Yang Shi You 301 will become the world’s largest LNG bunkering vessel, which can provide flexible bunkering services for offshore and inland LNG vessels. 

The vessel is originally a 30,000 cubic metre (m3) LNG carrier with a total length of 184.7 metres and a width of 28.1 metres.

According to reports, the ship is set to become a key international ocean-going LNG bunkering vessel. 

“The renovation project will add cryogenic units, gas combustion devices, front bunkering stations, ERS systems and other equipment for LNG bunkering operations to the ship, as well as add and transform the original mooring equipment and anti-collision facilities,” said Lu Chang Long, General Manager of CNOOC Energy Technology & Services Limited.

Wenchong Shipping Building And Repair Factory was tasked as the EPC general contractor of the renovation project. Other parties involved in the project included CNOOC Energy Technology & Services Limited and China Classification Society (CCS). 

The renovation work is expected to take more than 80 days and will be completed by the end of October 2022.
