STX Offshore & Shipbuilding has recently won an order for three LPG/ethylene carriers.
The Korean shipbuilder said that it signed the contract with Unigas Pool on September 27 to build the 12,000-CBM vessels.
The newbuilding price is estimated at around $33m each, industry sources say.
There have been eight orders for LPG/ethylene carriers in the 5,000-20,000 CBM size range so far this year following eight such orders last year and the same number in 2010.
