Shenzhen Gas has ordered an LNG carrier at CSSC Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding as it expands its business in the sector.

Shenzhen Gas will establish a single ship company in Hong Kong via its Hong Kong subsidiary to purchase a new 79,960 cu m LNG carrier at a cost of $121m. A third party ship manager will be hired to operate the vessel upon delivery.

The vessel will have an annual transportation capacity of 700,000 tons of LNG.
