China National Offshore Oil Company, or CNOOC, said on Tuesday its gas and power unit would fuel 50 gas-powered vessels to be built by a state-run shipping group as part of the country’s gasification push.
The vessels, all for dry bulk shipments and scaled at 2,000 – 3,000 dead-weight tonnages, will be powered purely by liquefied natural gas, CNOOC said.
CNOOC, China’s top importer of the super-chilled fuel, has also been a leader in pushing for its use as ship fuel.
In a separate pact, China State Shipbuilding Corporation Ltd agreed to build the 50 vessels for Guangdong Province Navigation Holdings Co Ltd to deploy along the Pearl River in south China.
