Purus Marine inks deal for LNG carrier duo

London-based Purus Marine said it has signed an agreement to acquire two 180,000-cbm LNG carriers.

The vessels are expected to deliver in the third quarter of 2024, directly into multi-year time charters with an energy major, according to a statement by Purus Marine issued on Thursday.

Purus Marine said it has acquired the LNG carriers in partnership with a “leading ship manager”, who would provide technical and commercial services for the vessels.

It did not reveal any further information.

Denmark’s Celsius Tankers, a unit of Celsius Shipping, released a similar statement on Thursday as well.

Celsius confirmed a report that it had ordered two new 180,000-cbm LNG carriers at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.

Also, the shipping firm said it has ordered the vessels with partners and that it would take delivery of the ships in 2024.

Celsius did not reveal the name of the partners but it said the vessels would go on a long-term charter to “one of the first-class energy majors”.

Purus Marine is a new maritime holding company. Asset management firm EnTrust Global announced the launch of Purus Marine in April this year.

According to its website, Purus Marine owns “environmentally-advanced” vessels and infrastructure equipment, contracted long-term to “high-quality” end users.

The company says it serves a wide variety of maritime sectors, including the industrial shipping, short-sea, ferry, offshore wind but also environmental remediation sectors.
