GasLog takes delivery of 2nd Cheniere-chartered newbuild

Greece-based vessel owner GasLog has taken delivery of another newbuild that will go on charter to US LNG exporter Cheniere.

The 174,000-cbm GasLog Galveston left the Samsung Heavy Industries yard in Geoye on Tuesday, its AIS data shows. It should arrive in Singapore around January 14.

The X-DF vessel is the second in a series of four newbuilds GasLog chartered to Cheniere.

The quartet Samsung is building for GasLog includes two 174,000 cbm and two 180,000 cbm vessels.

Samsung also completed and delivered the first carrier in this batch, the 174,000-cbm GasLog Georgetown.

Additionally, the yard launched the third carrier, the 180,000-cbm GasLog Wellington, on October 24. GasLog previously said it expects to take the delivery of this vessel on June 15, 2021.

The fourth vessel and the second 180,000-cbm carrier in this batch is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2021.

Equipped with WinGD’s dual-fuel propulsion, all of the vessels also feature GTT’s Mark III Flex Plus containment system.
