GTT to equip two new LNG carrier vessels for DSME
PARIS -- GTT has received an order from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to equip two LNG carriers with its NO96 GW containment system. DSME shipyard based in Geoje, South Korea will build the vessels of 173,400 m3 each, on behalf of a European ship-owner. Deliveries are scheduled in 2019.

This is the first order of LNG carriers from DSME since the beginning of the year. It comes in addition to the order of last February, concerning a floating storage regasification unit also equipped with GTT NO96 technology.
"We are proud of the close relationship we have had with DSME for over 30 yr, which has led to this new order. With 103 vessels in service and 49 in order at present, DSME is indeed a faithful user of our NO96 solutions," said Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT.
Large-scale production of shale gas in the US, which began around the turn of the century, is now feeding US exports in the form of LNG.
Annual demand for natural gas in the EU is pegged at approximately 380 Bm3y–450 Bm3y. A portion of this demand is met by regional production within the EU. However, the European energy system is beset by challenges that are impacting EU gas supply.
