SEOUL --  Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering, the holding company of HD Hyundai, has sealed an order worth 270.1 billion won ($207 million) to supply gas tanker ships to a Middle Eastern transportation company. Two large carriers will be delivered by August 2026 to Arab Maritime Petroleum Transport Co.

KSOE's spokesperson told Aju Daily on March 20 that the company has grabbed a total of 49 orders worth $6.51 billion in 2023, which includes the agreement with Arab Maritime Petroleum Transport (AMPTC).
