Samsung Heavy scores its first 2020 LNG carrier order

South Korean shipbuilding giant Samsung Heavy Industries has received an order to build one LNG carrier, the shipbuilder’s first such contract this year.

Samsung secured its last LNG carrier order for five vessels in December last year.

The new order worth 206 billion Korean won ($186 million) comes from an Oceania-based ship owner, Samsung said on November 30.

Samsung did not reveal the name of the company behind the order.

The shipbuilder plans to deliver the vessel by July 2023.

Besides this order, the yard secured a contract to build an S-Max crude oil carrier worth about 60 billion won ($54 million).

Including these contracts, Samsung won orders more than 3 trillion won worth this month alone.
