SEMBCORP Marine said on Tuesday it has topped the global list for the highest number of LNG (liquefied natural gas) vessel repair and upgrade projects in a single year.

The company tops the list for the fourth year running, securing a total of 34 such projects in the global market.

Sembcorp Marine's head of repairs and upgrades Wong Lee Lin said the record stems from relationships with long-term partners and customers.

Last year, Sembcorp Marine repaired and upgraded 32 LNG vessels at its Admiralty and Tuas Boulevard shipyards, up from 27 in 2013.
