South Korea’s DSME to build one LNG carrier

South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering said it has received an order to build one liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.

DSME said it would build the vessel for an unidentified owner in Oceania for 232.2 billion won ($197.3 million).

The shipbuilder will deliver the vessel by September 2024, according to a filing to the stock exchange.

DSME did not reveal any additional information.

The yard has this year won about $8.78 billion in orders for 47 ships.

These include very large crude carriers, LPG carriers, containerships, seven LNG carriers, and one wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV).
