Transit of three LNG vessels in one day sets new Panama Canal milestone

The Panama Canal Administration announced that it successfully transited three liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels through its Neopanamax locks on April 17, 2018, marking a first for the waterway.

On Tuesday last week, the Panama Canal transited the Clean Ocean, Gaslog Gibraltar and Gaslog Hong Kong vessels, which first arrived at the Canal from the Pacific Ocean and transited north, departing on the Atlantic side.

The development marks a significant milestone for the Panama Canal and its service of the burgeoning LNG segment - which began transiting the waterway for the first time following the inauguration of the Expanded Canal. The segment has seen steady growth in the nearly two years since.
