Samsung Heavy nets contract to build LNG carrier duo

South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries said it has secured an order to build two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.

Samsung said in a stock exchange announcement it would build the vessels for an Oceania-based owner.

The yard did not reveal the name of the company behind the order.

Moreover, the contract has a price tag of 417 billion won ($375 million), the shipbuilder said.

Samsung added it would deliver the ships by July 2024.

Including the newest contract, Samsung won orders more than $5.4 billion worth so far this year.

Worth mentioning here, brokers have earlier this month reported that NYK has ordered four 170,000-cbm LNG carriers at Samsung for delivery in 2024.

According to brokers, these vessels would go on charter to France’s TotalEnergies.
