Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) has reached a milestone at its Erhama bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard with the completion of 200th LNG vessel repair.

Chartered by Qatargas and operated by NYK LNG Shipmanagement, the 135,295-cbm Al Khor LNG carrier completed general drydocking maintenance repairs and upgrades at the shipyard, Nakilat said in a statement on Tuesday.

This is the third time the moss-type LNG carrier is calling for repairs at the facility, having previously been drydocked in 2014 and 2016.

In addition to regular maintenance, the vessel also underwent water ballast steel renewal and tank treatment, hull treatment, as well as several surveys and endurance tests during the drydocking period, Nakilat said.

Earlier this year, N-KOM completed its first repair project for a floating, storage, regasification unit (FSRU), when the 138,000-cbm FSRU Excelerate owned by Excelerate Energy underwent routine drydocking and repairs, in addition to modifications and retrofitting of several new systems, including the installation of a ballast water treatment system (BWTS).
