Denmark’s Celsius Tankers is making a big push to expand its LNG carrier fleet and has turned to shipyards in China for newbuildings as South Korean berth slots evaporate.

Multiple sources said the Jeppe Jensen-led company has set a plan to order 10 to 12 LNG carrier newbuildings at Chinese yards.

They said Celsius has approached all Chinese yards that are capable of building LNG carriers for its newbuildings.
