BW Orders Two LNG Carriers at DSME

Singapore-based oil and gas transporter BW Group has returned to South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.

The shipbuilding contract for the two 174,000 cbm LNG carriers is valued at around KRW 478 billion (USD 403 million), and the vessels are scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2019.

The vessels will be around 295 meters long, 46 meters wide, and they will be built at DSME Okpo shipyard in Geoje.

Back in August, BW LPG ordered four very large gas carriers (VLGCs) at DSME, scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2016.
