On 4 February 2020, a naming ceremony was held for SCF Group’s latest LNG carrier, SCF La Perouse, named after Jean-François de la Pérouse, a French explorer of the Pacific. The vessel will operate under a long-term time charter agreement with Total. The event was held at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries’ shipyard, Republic of Korea

Jean-François de la Pérouse (1741-1788) was a prominent French explorer, who from 1785 led a major scientific expedition around the Pacific, visiting Sakhalin Island, Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Kuril Islands. His name was given to the strait between the islands of Sakhalin and Hokkaido, connecting the Sea of Okhotsk with the Sea of Japan.

Currently, Sovcomflot has two more similar LNG carriers under construction, scheduled for delivery during the second half of 2020.
