South Korean shipbuilding giant Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering Co. (KSOE) has secured an order from an undisclosed client for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier.

The order, worth KRW 260 billion (around $217 million), was placed for the 174,000 cbm LNG carrier to be constructed by KSOE’s unit Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.

As informed, the delivery of the ship is scheduled for the second half of 2024.
