The 174,000-cbm LNG tanker is scheduled to be delivered to its owner in the first quarter of 2019, according to GasLog.

Monaco-based GasLog signed previously a time-charter contract for the LNG newbuild with the Hague-based LNG giant Shell.

Shell will charter the LNG carrier powered by a low-pressure dual-fuel engine from GasLog for a period of ten years.

GasLog’s total fleet consists of 29 LNG carriers out of which 5 are on order, according to the company’s website.
