South Korea’s shipbuilding giant Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) said it has secured an order worth 430.5 billion won ($393.5 million) to build a new liquefied natural gas carrier and a floating storage regasification unit.
According to DSME, the contract was signed on December 6 with an undisclosed shipowner from Oceania.
The two LNG vessels are scheduled for delivery by May, 2020, DSME said in a filing to the stock exchange.
Local media reports suggest that the order had been placed by Maran Gas Maritime, a unit of Greece’s Angelicoussis Shipping Group.
DSME noted it is the second order secured this week having previously scored a contract earlier in the week to build a very large crude oil carrier.
