South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries on Monday said it has secured a new order to build a liquefied natural gas carrier. 

The company said in its stock exchange filing, the deal with an unnamed shipowner from the Oceania region is worth 211.8 South Korean won ($186.8 million).

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in by the end of January 2021, the filing shows.

Yonhap reports the tanker will be capable of transporting 174,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel.

In an earlier statement, the shipbuilder said it expects the orders for LNG vessels to keep rising during the remainder of the year.
