GasLog Ltd. announced the delivery of the fully owned LNG carrier GasLog Seattle, from Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd.

She today, commenced a medium-term charter to Shell Tankers Singapore (Private) Limited, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc.

The delivery of the GasLog Seattle, concludes a busy year for GasLog, with the delivery of five new TFDE LNG Carriers (GasLog Shanghai, GasLog Santiago, GasLog Sydney, GasLog Skagen and GasLog Seattle) in addition to the acquisition of the GasLog Chelsea (formerly STX Frontier). As a result, GasLog’s on-the-water fleet has increased from two TFDE vessels at the beginning of the year to eight in December, 2013.

GasLog has two LNG carrier newbuildings due for delivery in 2014 one in 2015 and four in 2016.
