Hudong-Zhonghua signs LNG shipbuilding contract
Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Co, a unit of China State Shipbuilding Corp, has signed contract to construct three LNG carriers worth 3.9 billion yuan ($551.62 million), reported the state-backed Jiefang Daily.
The LNG carriers, each with a capacity of 174,000 cubic meters, will be operated by China COSCO Shipping and be deployed for LNG shipping services for PetroChina International Co, an affiliate of China National Petroleum Corp.
“The construction of the new LNG carriers is to response government calls to expand domestic demand,” Jiefang Daily reported, citing an official at COSCO Shipping.
COSCO Shipping will own 41 LNG carriers once the new vessels are completed, with combined capacity of 6.94 million cubic meters.
Hudong-Zhonghua in April won a $2.8 billion worth contract to build LNG carriers for Qatar Petroleum, the biggest export LNG vessels construction contract ever received by a Chinese shipyard ($1 = 7.0701 Chinese yuan renminbi) (Reporting by Muyu Xu and Tom Daly, editing by Louise Heavens)
Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
