Merkur Energy Port Services offers gas up and cool down services for LNG vessels via STS.

This flexible service reduces a vessel’s time alongside, limiting berth and port costs. The vessel can be gassed up following dry dock and cooled down. This can be done by cooling down one tank and loading a parcel of LNG via ship-to-ship where the vessel can then sail and subsequently cool down her other tanks when required.

Gas up and cool down services are currently available in Malaysia, if required permissions can be obtained to suit the customers' requirements.
