Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping has purchased four LNG carriers previously owned by Russia’s Sovcomflot from Dutch ING Bank, according to shipping sources.
All of the four LNG carriers EPS bought from ING are on charter with a unit of LNG giant Shell.
Sister vessels SCF Mitre and SCF Melampus, both delivered by STX Offshore in 2015, have a capacity of 170,200 cbm.
The two other LNG carriers include the 174,000-cbm SCF Timmerman and SCF Barents, both built by South Korea’s Hyundai Samho.
