Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of South Korea has been awarded a US425 million (KRW 455.7bn) deal to build two LNG tankers for an unnamed company registered in Oceania.
DSME expects to deliver the LNG tankers by the end of October in 2017, it said in a filling to the stock exchange.
The Korean shipbuilder also won an order last week to build two LNG carriers for a European owner.
Majority of this year’s newbuild orders have been won by South Korea’s shipbuilders, confirming the country’s dominance in the global LNG shipbuilding industry.
