South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) said it had secured an order worth 394.3 billion won ($366.7m) to build two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.

The two LNG vessels are scheduled for delivery by the end of September 2020, DSME said in a filing to the stock exchange on Tuesday.

Daewoo did not reveal the name of the shipping company that is behind the order saying only it was located in Oceania.

This deal comes less than a month after Daewoo won an order to build two LNG tankers for the Singapore-based gas shipping giant BW.

The two BW’s 173,400-cbm LNG carriers, priced at some $183 million each, are scheduled for delivery by the first half of 2020.

Looking at the latest contract value, the two new vessels are likely to be of similar capacity as the BW duo.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
