GTT scores SHI tank gig for seven LNG carriers

French LNG containment giant GTT has secured more orders from South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries.

Under two new contracts, GTT will design the tanks of seven 174,000-cbm LNG carriers scheduled for delivery between the first quarter of 2026 and the fourth quarter of 2027, according to a statement.

The tanks will be fitted with GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

GTT said that SHI would build the vessels on behalf of a European shipowner and an American shipowner.

The Paris-based firm did not provide any additional information.

These orders are probably related to two separate announcements by Samsung Heavy issued in November.

SHI said on November 11 it would build two LNG carriers for about $215.5 per vessel and deliver them by March 2026.

This order is tied to Greece’s Minerva Gas, a unit of Andreas Martinos-led Minerva Marine.

In addition to this order, SHI announced on November 23 a contract to build five LNG carriers worth almost $1.1 billion and scheduled for delivery by December 2027.

Seapeak, previously known as Teekay LNG Partners, confirmed that it had placed this order for five 174,000-cbm LNG carriers.
