Maran Gas Maritime has ordered another LNG carrier at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME). The shipbuilding contract was signed by the parties on April 9.
The deal would see the shipbuilder construct the 174,000 cbm carrier at its Geoje Okpo Shipyard and deliver the unit to its owners by the first quarter of 2022.
So far this year, DSME secured a combined USD 1.3 billion worth of orders. The builder’s 2019 orderbook includes four LNG carriers, all of which were contracted by Maran Gas Maritime.
