LNG newcomer Sea Jade Investment is said to have inked options for two newbuildings, doubling the size of its new fleet.

This brings to four the tally of 175,000-cbm LNG carriers it has on order at Chinese state-owned Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co (DSIC).

Sea Jade is a joint venture between Hong Kong shipowner Wah Kwong, Chinese leasing company CSSC (Hong Kong) Shipping and China Gas Holdings.
