DUBAI, Aug 4 (Reuters) - ADNOC Logistics and Services (ADNOC L&S), a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC)ADNOC.UL said on Tuesday it had formed a shipping joint venture with Wanhua Chemical Group.

The new company, AW Shipping Limited, is incorporated in Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), a statement by ADNOC said.

AW Shipping will own and operate a fleet of very large gas carriers (VLGCs) and modern product tankers.
