The 173,400-cbm liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker Patris is currently being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea.

The LNG vessel was ordered back in 2015 by a joint venture comprising of “K” Line LNG Shipping, a unit of the Japanese shipping major ‘K’ Line, and Greek shipowner Chandris.

The order also included a sister vessel named Patris. Both of the vessels are expected to be delivered next year.

The duo has been chartered by the UK-based energy giant BP that is planning to use the vessels to transport cargoes from the Freeport LNG export project in the United States.
