Qatari LNG shipping giant Nakilat has expanded its joint venture partnership with Greek shipping company Maran Ventures to include two additional liquefied natural gas vessels.Maran Nakilat was first established in 2005 with four jointly-owned LNG vessels, and was further expanded on several occasions.This new agreement increases the number of vessels jointly-owned by Nakilat and Maran Gas from 13 to 15 vessels, according to a statement by Nakilat.The two newly added vessels, Woodside Rogers and Woodside Goode were both built and delivered in 2015 by South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).The two vessels are under long-term charter with Australian LNG operator Woodside.They are equipped with dual fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) propulsion models with a capacity of 159,800 cubic metres, each.
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, (CMC):Fast bowler Kesrick Williams said making his international debut in a series West Indies had already lost had no bearing on his approach.Playing in the third and final Twenty20 International on Tuesday, the right-armer produced a superb spell, taking two for 15 from his four overs, as West Indies slumped to an eight-wicket defeat to suffer the embarrassment of a 3-0 whitewash in the series.The right-armer said though West Indies had already surrendered the series, it was still important to make the most of the opportunity.”I wouldn’t say it wasn’t an ideal time [to make my debut]. Cricket is cricket, so whenever you get a chance, it’s just about your time to execute,” the Vincentian told reporters.”As long as you get that shot, you have to grab it with both hands. I just went out there with my mind free – not thinking that we lost the series, and just played positive cricket. I did it in CPL (Caribbean Premier League), and enjoyed myself playing CPL and that’s what I did here tonight.”I didn’t look at it as I was playing against Pakistan, or against Sharjeel Khan or whatever. At the end of the day, it’s the same cricket. I look at it like I’m playing cricket at home, don’t try to overthink it and do what I do best – bowl and just execute.”Williams, a late call-up to replace explosive all-rounder AndrÈ Russell, conceded that the series had been a difficult one for the Caribbean side.”It’s tough, it’s really tough … it’s really hot there and takes a while to get adapted to the conditions, but we are tough cricketers and we always look to give our 110 per cent,” he pointed out.”Cricket is a game of uncertainties, so you just can’t come out and say you’re going to win today or win tomorrow; you just have to put in a lot of work.”Pakistan played good cricket, Kudos to them. We just have to come out for the ODIs and do well.”
