Welcome to U.S. Commercial Service Korea!


On February 15-16, Commercial Officer Daniel Lew coordinated Chargé d’Affaires Marc Knapper’s presence at the Chevron Ship Naming Ceremony of its new LNG vessel, “Asia Integrity.”  The event took place on the southern coast of Korea on Geoje Island and included a ship naming ceremony, ship christening, and tour of the 160,000 cubic meter LNG carrier.  Through networking and meetings with Chevron executives, CDA Knapper and CO Lew were able to learn more about Chevron’s LNG export strategies while emphasizing the U.S. Government’s commitment to supporting LNG trade between the U.S. and Korea.  In Korea, Chevron has made significant investments to build oil and gas exploration platforms.  From 2017, and over the next five years, Chevron will be transporting 4.5 million tons of LNG to Korea’s SK LNG Trading Company.  To continue advancing LNG exports to Korea and other parts of the world, Chevron is nearing completion of its five-year shipbuilding and fleet modernization program.  Part of the program includes the building of six new LNG carriers with Samsung Heavy Industries, one of which is the newly-unveiled “Asia Integrity.”
