French energy major TotalEnergies and German-controlled Gazprom Germania have redelivered long-term chartered LNG carriers to Russian shipowner Sovcomflot (SCF Group).

TradeWinds understands the 174,100-cbm SCF La Perouse (built 2020) has been handed back to Sovcomflot by TotalEnergies.

The vessel had been fixed on a seven-year charter to TotalEnergies from its delivery at a rate reported to be in the low $60,000s per day.
