LNG transportation

Transporting 13% of the annual domestic import volume

Hyundai LNG Shipping is transporting 5.23 million tons of domestic LNG, 13% of the annual import volume of 40 million tons, benefiting from its long-term operating experience in the field.

Shale gas transportation

The shale gas vessel to lead the global LNG market

In response to the shale gas revolution growing worldwide, we have achieved 2 orders of shale gas vessels in 2014. We have been successfully introducing shale gas, which will lead the global LNG market, from the US Sabine Pass area since 2017.

Vessel Information

Hyundai LNG shipping operates total eight LNG carriers which are six Moss-type LNG carriers and two Membrane-type LNG carriers. Among them there are the latest two LNG carriers of the Membrane type (MEGI Engine) which are added after receiving the shale gas order in 2014. Let us proudly introduce our vessels.

Moss

MOSS technology uses the form that has a spherical cargo window.
A Moss-type tank is separated from the vessel body and is designed to maintain pressure by shipping LNG inside the tank, which is independent of the hull.
The tank is designed to ensure safety in case of leakage by applying ‘Leak Before Failure’ concept

Membrane

A membrane-type vessel has a cargo window inside the ship.
Membrane method has been developed to overcome defects in older independent tanks and supports the internal LNG pressure and weight as well as the hull. This technique can increase the amount of mounting and minimize protrusion of upper armored plates. A Membrane-type vessel is also heat-efficient.
