Oak Spirit is now operating under its 5-year fee-based charter contract to Cheniere Energy, lifting volumes from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export facility alongside the Creole Spirit.

The successful delivery from the yard and commencement of charter contracts of this vessel is an important milestone for Teekay LNG Partners (TGP) as the Company continue to focus on executing on its committed growth projects. Teekay currently have seven more vessels of this kind in various stages of build at DSME – including the Torben Spirit. Two additional LNG MEGI newbuildings will be built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard.
