Shell Building Largest FLNG Tanker Ever (488m)

Royal Dutch Shell apparently is less impressed by predictions of rapidly depleting fossil fuel reserves, now that it is busy building the largest vessel in history (250,000 ton = 35 Eiffel towers) for the transport of floating liquefied natural gas, in South-Korea (by Samsung). Fully laden the weight of the giant (600,000 ton) would be five times that of an aircraft carrier and can be seen as the world’s largest fridge (-163°C). The fuel is intended to be pumped from the ocean floor near the Australian coast and can be received by anyone with enough cash and a large enough quay.

Willem Barentsz Comes Full Circle

Dutch movie trailer with english subs of Willem Barentsz trying to find the northern sea route to east Asia in 1594. He failed but at least he had a sea named after him. More than four centuries later, the voyage is becoming routine. Now the first ever tanker loaded with liquid natural gas (LNG) sails the Northern Sea Route with gas from Norway to energy hungry Japan. Thanks to global warming causing rapid melting of sea ice.
