SINGAPORE: GAIL (India) is inviting bids from interested companies to charter the liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker Meridian Spirit for a period of one year, two industry sources said on Wednesday.

The 163,000-cubic metre tanker will be available from March 2021 to March 2022, and companies are requested to submit bids by Nov. 6 with bids remaining valid until Nov. 9, the sources said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorised to speak with the media.

The Indian importer has been using the ship to transport gas from the United States where it has 20-year deals to buy 5.8 million tonnes a year of LNG, split between Dominion Energy’s Cove Point plant and Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass site in Louisiana. A GAIL official could not immediately be reached for comment on the matter.
