French membrane containment system designer GTT has beaten its LNG carrier order and LNG dual-fuelled vessel figures for the whole of 2021 with a record order haul in the first half of 2022.

The company booked orders to design the tanks for 88 LNG carriers in the first half of this year - with 24 of these vessels being part of QatarEnergy’s huge newbuilding program against 68 vessels in 2021. Delivery dates on the ships range from the third quarter of 2024 into the April to June period of 2027.
