A naming ceremony has been held at the Geoje Island shipyard of Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea for two LNG vessels being built for joint owners NYK LNG (Atlantic), Mitsui and Teekay Corporation.

‘Lobito’ and ‘Cubal’ are jointly owned by NYK LNG (Atlantic) (33 percent), Mitsui (34 percent), and Teekay (33 percent). ‘Lobito’ was completed on October 31, and ‘Cubal’ will be by January 12, 2012. The vessels are the third and fourth of in a four-vessel series, following the first two sisters ‘Soyo’ and ‘Malanje’, which were completed in August and September. These four vessels will be used for shipments of LNG from Angola to the global market under 20-year time charters. The vessels have been chartered by Angola LNG Supply Services (ALSS) and will ship the LNG produced by Angola LNG.

Each vessel has a length overall of 285 metres and a breadth of 43.4 metres, with cargo capacity of 160,276.4 cubic metres and a gross tonnage of 100,800 tonnes.
