Repsol conducts ‘largest’ LNG bunker supply op in Spain

16 Mar 2018

Madrid-based oil company Repsol has reportedly carried out the largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operations in Spain at Cartagena port in the week ended 11 March, 2018.

A total 425 cubic metre (m3) of LNG marine fuel was supplied to the Canadian-registered product carrier Mia Desgagnes via 10 LNG trucks.

The record breaking operation was an effort between Repsol, Enagás, Molgas, the Port Authority of Cartagena and Cartagena Maritime Authority (Capitanía Marítima de Cartagena).

The figure is larger than an earlier 370 m3 supplied by Repsol in a pipe-to-ship bunkering operation from the Enagas LNG Terminal in Cartagena.

The Mia Desgagnes is able to consume fuel oil, marine diesel oil or LNG as bunkers. Almost $9 million, out of the vessel’s total value of more than $50 million, is dedicated solely to dual-fuel/LNG motorisation, according to Quebec-based shipping firm Desgagnes.

The vessel is the second in a series of four new-generation product tankers custom-built according to an original concept developed by the shipping company and ordered at the Besiktas shipyard located in Yalova near Istanbul, Turkey.
