    Sekwang Heavy Industries in South Korea has secured an order for a seismic research vessel, with an option for one more, at a price of US$120 million per ship, from China’s BGP.

    BGP is a subsidiary of China’s largest oil group, China National Petroleum.

    LR-Fairplay's Daily Newbuilding News said Sekwang’s backlog is 42 ships, valued about Us$2 billion, which should keep the builder busy until the end of 2011.
