04 August, 2020
Shell has ordered six new LNG carriers from Knutsen LNG, Korea Line Corporation and ICBC Financial Leasing and institutional investors.
LNG carriers will be built by Hyunday Heavy Industries and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries and will produce 60% less carbon emissions compared to 2004 steam turbines built.
This order is part of Shell’s net-zero strategy by 2050, with an anticipated long-term goal to have 8 LNG carriers.
