Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. ("K" Line) is pleased to announce the successful delivery of its brand new
145,000m3 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Carrier "CELESTINE RIVER", constructed at Kawasaki Ship-
building Corporationís Sakaide Shipyard in Kagawa, Japan. "K" Line LNG Shipping (UK) Limited (KLNG),
headquartered in London, is the sole owner of the vessel, and will also be responsible for the ship ma-
nagement of "CELESTINE RIVER" followed by two vessels for the Snøhvit project and one vessel for the
Qatar Gas project. "K" Line Group will, consequently, bring its LNG Carrier fleet to 32 vessels in total,
including 8 vessels managed by "K" Line Group. Responding to the existing business in the Japanese
market and a growing interest in the Atlantic basin, "K" Line Group completed its formulation of a trilateral
framework among the "K" Line global bases in the UK, the US and Japan. "K" Line Group is ready to re-
spond to increasing and diversified LNG shipping needs, such as short-mid term and spot charters. For
these reasons, KLNG will be owning and managing this vessel. This vessel will be chartered for a
period of a maximum of ten years to a subsidiary of Cheniere Energy, Inc., an American energy
company, soon after the delivery. KLNG will step up its endeavors to further strengthen its transport
capabilities and will flexibly and positively respond to the increasing and diversified global LNG shipping
demands. While this 145,000m3 Moss type LNG Carrier, "CELESTINE RIVER", was constructed as a
multi-functional versatile vessel, it is compatible with many major existing LNG terminals around the
world. This vessel will be utilized for transporting LNG primarily to LNG receiving terminals being
developed by Cheniere Energy in the US. Responding to the growing demands of global LNG trading,
 this brand new vessel promises efficient, reliable and customer-friendly LNG transportation.
