The liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers are designed and built specifically for carrying liquefied natural gas at the temperature of below -163 degrees Celsius at sea. To build a large LNG vessel is known as one of the toughest tasks in the world's shipbuilding industry.

Since delivering the first self-built LNG carrier in 2008 after 10 years' efforts, Chinese shipbuilders quickly grew into a major powerhouse in the industry by winning more than 30 percent of the global orders for LNG carriers in 2022.
