Mitsui O.S.K. Lines today announced that a naming ceremony for the LNG Venus, a newbuilding liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier was held at the Nagasaki Shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The vessel is under construction at MHI and will serve Osaka Gas Co., Ltd.


As a large group of guests looked on, Osaka Gas President Ozaki named the vessel, and his wife cut the rope.


The LNG Venus is co-owned by MOL and Osaka Gas’ wholly owned subsidiary, Osaka Gas International Transport Inc. After its completion, it will sail under a charter contract with Osaka Gas.


Aiming toward its goal of “solid growth through innovative changes” set forth in the midterm management plan STEER FOR 2020, MOL continues to offer value-added services – backed by the experience, know-how, and network accumulated as the world leader in LNG carrier ownership and management – to customers including electric power and gas utilities in Japan.
