Greek shipowner GasLog announced Monday its newest liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier HN2300, to be named GasLog Georgetown, commenced sea trials off South Korea.

Built by Samsung Heavy Industries, HN2300 is a 174,000-cubic-meter capacity XDF LNG carrier with a Mk III Flex Plus cargo containment system giving a low boil off rate of 0.07%, combined with a sub cooler.

Upon delivery, GasLog Georgetown will be operated under a seven-year charterer for U.S.-based Cheniere.

The ship will be the fourth newbuild delivered to GasLog in 2020, following the 180,000-cubic-meter capacity GasLog Windsor in April, GasLog Wales in May and GasLog Westminster in July.

GasLog currently has three additional LNG carriers on order at Samsung. The three ships, including another 174,000-cubic-meter capacity vessel and two 180,000-cubic-meter capacity vessels, are due for delivery through 2021, and each will also be chartered to Cheniere for seven years.
