TMS Cardiff Gas is being linked to a lone LNG carrier newbuilding order announced on Tuesday by Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE).

The South Korean yard grouping said it had secured a KRW 348.6bn ($243m) order without naming the owner behind it.

It said the vessel will be built at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries and delivered in the second half of 2026.

Sources familiar with the business told TradeWinds the ship has been booked by George Economou-controlled TMS Cardiff Gas.
