Two LNG carrier newbuildings have been fixed out on multi-year deals slimming the pool of uncommitted on-order tonnage as the market thirst for vessels intensifies.

Brokers said Evangelos Marinakis-controlled Capital Gas has fixed out one of the company’s two 2023-delivering newbuildings.

The 174,000-cbm newbuilding Amore Mio 1 is reported to have been snapped up by QatarEnergy Trading — the trading arm of Middle East liquefaction giant QatarEnergy — for three years at a rate around the $180,000 per day mark.
