World’s 1st CNG Carrier! Departing from China to Indonesia

The world’s first compressed natural gas (CNG) carrier was delivered on March 23 in Jiangsu, China, before setting sail for Indonesia.

With a capacity of up to 700,000 cubic meters per voyage, the vessel will be used to transport CNG between islands in Indonesia for use by peak-demand power plants.

The CNG carrier stores natural gas in pressurized containers at ambient temperature. Unlike liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, a CNG carrier does not need expensive equipment such as liquefaction facilities and regasification terminals.
