Chinese gas trader Oriental Energy has entered into shipbuilding contracts with Jiangnan Shipyard for the construction of two 93,000 cu m very large gas carriers.
The LPG dual-fuel vessels will be used to support Oriental Energy’s development of a new plant in Guangdong. Delivery of the vessels is scheduled for 2023.
The order comes after Jiangnan Shipyard delivered two 84,000 cu m VLGCs to Oriental Energy last year.
Oriental Energy currently controls a fleet of 14 VLGCs.
