Ship owner GasLog Ltd. announced it has ordered another newbuild liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier from South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries, with options for additional newbuilds.

The 180,000 cubic meter capacity Flex Plus vessel with XDF propulsion is the second LNG carrier ordered by GasLog this year. The two vessels are unchartered and scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020 respectively.

"Given that the outlook for LNG shipping demand remains robust, and with increasing evidence that newbuild prices are starting to rise, we have moved to lock in a very attractive price for our second newbuild order in 2018," said GasLog CEO, Paul Wogan. "We remain confident that the unit freight cost advantage offered by the latest generation vessels will make this ship highly attractive to customers looking for the most competitive solution to their LNG shipping requirements."

GasLog owns 29 LNG carriers, including 23 ships in operation and six LNG carriers on order. The company also has an additional LNG carrier which was sold to a subsidiary of Mitsui Co., Ltd. and leased back under a long-term bareboat charter.
