French LNG containment specialist, GTT has received an order from a Korean shipyard for the tank design of two new liquefied natural gas tankers, reaching a total of 50 orders for the year 2018. 

The company noted that the two 174,000-cbm LNG carriers are being built by a South Korean shipyard for an Asian shipowner without disclosing the names of either of the parties.
