The vessel, being built by Samsung Heavy Industries is a 174,000-cbm X-DF LNG carrier.

Currently known as SN2300, the LNG carrier will be named as GasLog Georgetown.

The vessel features MK III Flex Plus cargo containment system giving a low boil-off rate of 0.07 per cent, combined with a sub-cooler, GasLog said in a brief statement through its social media channels.
