Qatar’s First Qflex Tankers Hit The Waves

Qatar’s first two Qflex ships, the Al Safliya and the Al Ruwais, have been handed over to their owner while another pair is scheduled for delivery in the next several days. Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering delivered these initial vessels to a joint venture grouping Qatar Gas Transport Co, Pronav and Commerzleasing on October 31. Two more Qflex ships called the Tembek and Al Qattara were also due to be handed over to another ship owning venture comprising QGTC and Overseas Shipholding Group by Samsung Heavy Industries and Hyundai Heavy Industries in late October. But this delivery date has now slipped into November. The four new carriers sized at 210,100 m3 and 216,200 m3 are expected to set sail for Qatar’s Ras Laffan soon. Download here
