New LNG Carrier for Ichthys LNG Project
Named “OCEANIC BREEZE”

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line) held naming ceremony for a newly-built liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier at Nagasaki Shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI).
The new vessel was given her name “OCEANIC BREEZE” by Mr. Toshiaki Kitamura, President of INPEX Corporation (INPEX).
Designed by MHI, the vessel has adopted “SAYAENDO” which features a continuous cover integrated with the vessel’s hull that is light-weight and minimizes wind pressure which accomplishes low fuel consumption while successfully achieving environmentally-friendly conditions.
“OCEANIC BREEZE” will be time-chartered by INPEX Shipping Co., Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of INPEX, and will be carrying LNG from the Ichthys LNG Project in Darwin, Australia to Naoetsu, Niigata after her delivery.
