South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has reportedly secured another contract to construct a liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.

Yonhap New Agency cited the shipbuilder as saying that it received the order from an undisclosed Oceania shipowner.

Further details related to the shipowner and the shipbuilding contract were not revealed.

The deal allegedly pushed DSME’s orderbook to USD 6.4 billion, representing 88 percent of the shipbuilder’s 2018 target of USD 7.3 billion in new orders.

The latest shipbuilding contract was revealed only days after DSME won a deal to build an LNG carrier for John Angelicoussis’ shipping company Maran Gas Maritime. The earlier ordered 173,400 cbm ship would be handed over to its owner by the first half of 2021.
