ADNOC buys two LNG tankers from the Chinese shipyard

ADNOC Logistics & Services (ADNOC L&S), the shipping and maritime logistics arm of ADNOC, has announced the signing of a ship building contract for the construction of two LNG tankers.

The new build vessels each will have a capacity of 175,000cbm and will join the ADNOC L&S fleet in 2025, according to the company. New tankers will be built in Jiangnan Shipyard in China.

ADNOC L&S highlighted that the new LNG tankers will be “significantly larger” than its current fleet of LNG vessels, which are said to have a capacity of 137,000cbm each. According to ADNIC L&S, the acquisition of larger, more energy efficient tankers will allow the business to meet growing customer demand while improving the environmental footprint of its fleet. 

The purchase of the new LNG vessels is part of ADNOC L&S’s broader growth and expansion strategy, the company outlined, adding that the new LNG vessels will be crucial enablers of ADNOC’s 2030 growth strategy.
