Greek Shipowner Orders LNG Tanker in Korea, Lloyd’s List Says

September 28, 2011

Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Alpha Tankers & Freighters, a Greek shipowner, ordered a liquefied natural gas carrier at STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co., shipping newspaper Lloyd’s List said, without stating where it obtained the information.

Alpha Tankers & Freighters converted an order for two capesize bulk carriers, with delivery of the tanker due in April 2015 and an option placed for a second, the paper said. It’s the 25th LNG gas carrier ordered by shipowners in Greece in 2011, according to Lloyd’s List.
