Hudong building MOL LNG quartet

Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) has been selected to build China’s first LNG carrier export order for a Japanese owner for delivery in the 2015 to 2016 period.

Industry sources say Hudong will construct four 170,000m3 LNG carriers for Japanese shipowner Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) that will serve the ExxonMobil-led transport of LNG from Papua New Guinea and Exxon’s Western Australia Gorgon Jansz project.

The four-ship order will bring the yard’s LNG-carrier newbuildings up to 10 ships. Hudong-Zhonghua has built and delivered five 147,000m3 LNG carriers to date and currently has a sixth vessel of similar size under construction for delivery in 2012. All six vessels have been contracted by Cosco/China Merchants joint venture China LNG Shipping (Holdings).
