The LNG carrier Louisiana, 10th liquefied natural gas carrier built by General Dynamics during the past three years at its Quincy,

Mass., shipyard, was delivered re- cently to Lachmar. Earlier this year a sister ship, the Lake

Charles, was completed for the same owner, which is a partner- ship of subsidiaries of Panhandle

Eastern Pipe Line Company, Gen- eral Dynamics, and Moore Mc-

Cormack Bulk Transport, Inc.

Lachmar is 40 percent owned by Pelmar Company, a subsidiary of Panhandle Eastern; 40 percent by Pantheon, Inc., a General Dy- namics' subsidiary; and 20 per- cent by Morgas, Inc., a subsidiary of Moore McCormack Bulk Trans- port.

With a capacity of 125,000 cu- bic meters of LNG in her five spherical tanks, the Louisiana has an overall length of 936 feet, beam of 143.5 feet, depth of 82 feet, and design draft of 36 feet.

Her displacement is 95,088 long tons, and deadweight 63,600 long tons.

The main propullsion plant is a 43,000-shp General Electric geared steam turbine, driving a single Ferguson propeller at 103 rpm for a design speed of 20.4 knots. The ship's two Foster

Wheeler main boilers are arranged to burn heavy fuel oil alone or in combination with LNG cargo boil- off.

The five spherical, aluminum cargo tanks, which carry the LNG at —265 F, each have an inside diameter of 120 feet. They were fabricated at General Dynamics'

Charleston, S.C., facility and transported to the Quincy yard aboard a specially constructed barge, one at a time.

Loading/unloading time for the 125,000-cubic meter cargo is 12 (continued on page 28)
