Press Release.Over 14 million tonnes of LPG traded annually LPG Liquefied Petroleum Gas is predominantly propane and butanes, either segregated or in various ratios and mixtures of each product. It is also a by-product of the refinery process, transported mainly in pressurised vessels.
As well as being a fundamental building block in the petrochemical process, LPG it also a convenient fuel used globally for domestic purposes; in the northern hemisphere, LPG is used for home heating, while in Africa it is used as a cooking gas. In some markets, LPG is also used as a fuel for cars known as Autogas. We are a long-term participant in the global LPG market, having launched our operation in Today, we trade circa 14 million tonnes of LPG annually, enabling refiners to market a product they might once have flared and providing a reliable, competitively priced supply line to fuel distributors and utility companies.
We offer our customers a complete, end-to-end service.

Ships that are designed to carry liquefied gas have become more significant and increased in number in the recent years, with the increasing need for alternative fuel. To understand the design characteristics of these two types of ships, we first need to know a few notable details about the composition and properties of LPG and LNG.
Petroleum hydrocarbon products such as Propane and Butane, and mixtures of both have been categorised by the oil industry as LPG. It is widely used in domestic and industrial purposes today. The most important property of LPG is that it is suitable for being pressurised into liquid form and transported.
But there are conditions related to pressure and temperature that need to be maintained for the above to be carried out without posing threat to life, environment, and cargo. At least one of the following conditions need to be complied with, for transportation of LPG:. We will see, at a later stage, how the above conditions affect the design of different types of LPG tankers. Other gases such as ammonia, ethylene and propylene are also transported in liquefied form in LPG carriers.
Ethylene, however, has a lower boiling point degree celsius than other LPGs. Hence it must be carried in semi-refrigerated or fully-refrigerated conditions. Natural gas from which impurities like sulphur and carbon-dioxide have been removed, is called Liquefied Natural Gas.
After removal of impurities, it is cooled to its boiling point degree Celsiusat or almost at atmospheric pressure. LNG, at this condition is transported as liquid methane. In this article, we will understand the general arrangement, and other design details of gas carriers as and when we look into the different types of vessels based on their functionality and type of cargo being carried. The most important feature of gas carriers is the cargo containment system.
It is according to this criteria that LPG carriers are categorised into types. These are the tanks that form a primary structural part of the ship and are influenced by the loads coming onto the hull structure.
They are mainly used for cases when LPG is to be carried at conditions close to atmospheric condition, for example — Butane. That is because, in this case, there are no requirements for expansion or contraction of the tank structure. These tanks are self-supporting in nature, and they do not form an integral part of the hull structure. Hence, they do not contribute to the overall strength of the hull girder.For the full version of this article, please go to Shipping Intelligence Network.
Back in the past the gas shipping sectors may have been considered relatively niche within the world of global shipping. However, in the last two decades they have been amongst the faster growing parts of the industry. Gas LNG and LPG shipping may once have been considered by some as a relatively niche part of global shipping, with the fleet and trade volumes dwarfed by other sectors.
However, following phases of rapid fleet growth, the combined gas carrier fleet now stands poised to top million cbm of gas carrying capacity next year, more than double the size of the fleet at the end of Following expansion in LNG trade in the late s, in the mids a glut of new export terminal sanctioning led to a surge in LNG carrier contracting, peaking at In comparison the LPG carrier fleet grew more steadily, though trade growth was supported by increased export volumes from the Middle East and Europe.
However, after the economic downturn, sanctioning of liquefaction projects slowed, which limited LNG fleet growth, and growth in the LPG sector slowed too. Nevertheless, since the start of it has been full steam ahead for the gas carrier fleet. With LNG carrier ordering backed by the return to liquefaction terminal sanctioning in the s and the vision of a cleaner energy future, and LPG carrier demand supported by the advent of fracking in the US and refinery capacity expansion elsewhere, Have a nice day.
Successful investors are always looking to get on the right side of an uneven bet, and the shipping market has had an uneven look to it so far in However, the upside has not been spread equally across the sectors at all, and the same could be said of trends in capacity growth. Looking at the key markets, the LPG sector has continued to be a star performer, and tankers have had a great run in the year to date too.
Containerships have seen charter earnings increase from historical lows, but poor old bulkers continue to see rock bottom levels. However, one factor that appears to be more even is the volume of capacity entering the fleet.
Shipyard output looks fairly steady, with the 6-month moving average of deliveries averaging around m dwt per month for about a year and half now.
As a result fleet growth has slowed from the c. Is this good news? A high level view may suggest that, with a fair wind on the demand side, more moderate supply side growth at least should not make the underlying market surplus any worse.
However, looking in more detail it is clear that the rate of capacity growth is highly uneven across sectors too. Supply growth in the key cargo vessel sectors can be split into three. In the fast lane we have those sectors where fleet growth is expected to speed up in Supply growth in other sectors looks set to remain relatively steady in compared tobut there are also a number of sectors where it is projected to slow in LNG carrier and Handy bulker supply growth will start to recede.
So, market earnings are uneven today and despite the big picture suggesting that capacity growth will remain moderately steady across anddelving into the detail suggests that supply-side impetus will be uneven from one sector to another. Some sectors might be start to feel fresh pressures whilst others might breathe a sigh of relief. Those aiming to get on the right side of the bet should look closely. Home About Us.

Keeping Cool Gas LNG and LPG shipping may once have been considered by some as a relatively niche part of global shipping, with the fleet and trade volumes dwarfed by other sectors.Shale gas production is in an unstoppable phase in some parts of the world, and this will be a high-impact driver for the global LPG tanker market.
The market for LPG tankers is expected to display strong growth until the end of the forecast period of this report on account of several other factors as well. With the high production of shale gas, there has been a concurrent increase in the trade of LPG. This has subsequently led to the demand for LPG tankers to swing upward. As a result of the several positive factors acting on the market, several LPG carries and tanker companies have either already expanded their capacities or are planning to do so in the near future.
This report examines how the rapid expansion of the gas energy market will impact the dynamics of the global LPG tanker market. In order to present a highly objective analysis, the report makes used of a balanced mix of primary and secondary research and backs it with the independent analysis of our seasoned research analysts. The report reveals the most lucrative regional markets for LPG tankers and which type of LPG tankers will see the highest demand.
The top three trends that are giving the global LPG tanker market a boost are: Increased shale gas production from hitherto untapped reserves, an upswing in international gas trade, and the continued use of LPG as a cooking fuel. The volatility in crude oil prices has prompted the industry to extracting shale gas and oil.
This has been possible on a large scale because of the technological improvements in fracking practices. The amount of shale gas moving from the U. However, the erratic behavior of crude oil prices has led to the prices of LPG becoming stronger, which has diluted demand to some degree. This factor could hurt the demand for LPG tankers.Checks before Arrival of loading and unloading port LNG , LPG & CNG GAS TANKER (NYK ship management)
Gas tankers can be fully pressurized, fully refrigerated, or semi-pressurized. Carriers for ethylene are regarded as a separate segment in the market because these require extra refrigeration.
The capacity of such carries can range from as low as cubic meters to over 10, cubic meters. Thus, the type of gas tanker selected would directly depend on the volume of LPG that is to be transported or stored. By size, the types of LPG tankers available on the market are small, medium, large, and very large gas carriers.
Because the Middle East has conventionally been the hub for oil production, the LPG gas tanker market in the region has been relatively large. However, with shale oil production showing a spike in the U. That will, consequently, cause the demand for LPG tankers to rise in these countries. The demand for energy is at an all-time high in emerging APAC countries. This will also create million-dollar opportunities for the LPG tanker market in the region.
