Oman’s Asyad Shipping has confirmed a deal for two new LNG carriers in South Korea as part of its diversification strategy.

The former Oman Shipping Co said the two 174,000-cbm vessels will arrive from "first-class shipyard" Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in 2026.

The carriers are designed to meet the latest and highest standards of sustainability and efficiency, the company added.
