November 10, 2022 [Reuters] – Japan’s Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) (9104.T) has signed a long-term charter contract for three newbuild liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers with state-owned QatarEnergy, the Japanese firm said on Thursday.
The three vessels will be built by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group Co. Ltd in China, and are set for delivery in 2027, MOL said in a statement.
The move follows MOL’s signing of a long-term charter deal with QatarEnergy in April for four newbuild LNG carriers, also by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding, for delivery between 2024 and 2025.
