Mitsui OSK Lines is being named as the company behind an order for a single LNG carrier announced by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering on 12 August, adding to its apparent tally of open newbuildings.

Industry sources following the business said the 174,000-cbm ME-GA engine-fitted vessel is an option that was held by the Japanese owner.

It is due for delivery in the second half of 2026.
