AET’s pioneer LNG dual-fuel Dynamic Positioning Shuttle Tanker Eagle Blane embarked on her maiden bunkering at the Port of Rotterdam on 20 April. Three other members of the AET fleet: VLCC Bunga Kasturi Lima, Aframax Eagle Kinabalu and Product Tanker Bunga Laurel were also present during the bunkering, moored around the same locality of Eagle Blane’s berth. The ship-to-ship bunkering was arranged by the Shell LNG Trading team and lasted nearly 15 hours including cooling down during which approximately 1480 cubic metres of LNG was pumped into Eagle Blane. The bunkering filled up 87% of Eagle Blane’s total LNG tank capacity, enabling her to sail for approximately 3,500 nautical miles.

After leaving the Port of Rotterdam, Eagle Blane sailed to Åmøyfjorden in Stavanger.

The Norwegian-flagged vessel will be operating in oilfields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea and the southern Barents Sea, as well as on the UK Continental Shelf.

Eagle Blane is AET’s most eco-innovative vessel to date, emitting 40-48% less carbon than equivalent vessels built in 2008.
