GasLog set to take delivery of another Cheniere-chartered vessel

Greece-based vessel owner GasLog is to take delivery of another newbuild following the completion of its sea trials.

The firm expects the 174,000-cbm carrier GasLog Galveston to join its fleet early January.

The X-DF vessel is the second in a series of four newbuilds that will go on charter to US LNG exporter Cheniere.

The Cheniere-chartered X-DF quartet Samsung Heavy Industries is building for GasLog includes two 174,000-cbm and two 180,000-cbm vessels.

Samsung already 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 expects to take the delivery of this vessel on June 15, 2021.

Furthermore, 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.
