Sovcomflot orders LNG-fuelled product tanker trio at Zvezda

Russian shipping major Sovcomflot has placed an order at Zvezda shipbuilding complex for the construction of three LNG-fuelled MR product tankers.

The three 51,000 dwt vessels will transport petroleum products and gas condensate and will be chartered to Novatek under long-term time charter agreements.

In 2018, Sovcomflot already had three LNG-fueled aframax crude oil tankers delivered to its fleet.

Currently Sovcomflot has a total of nine newbuildings on order at two South Korean yards and Zvezda.
