South Korea’s LPG imports to increase in 2019
South Korea’s LPG imports are expected to increase 9.5% in 2019 on account of stronger demand from the petrochemical sector as well as the recent policy change that will allow LPG-fueled vehicles in the private sector.

06 Mar 2019: Why scrubber installation makes sense for VLGC owners?

With less than a year to go before the cap on sulphur comes into force, VLGC shipowners are increasingly considering scrubbers as an attractive option to meet IMO’s low-sulphur regulation. In this piece, we discuss the economics behind scrubber installation.

06 Feb 2019: Economic slowdown and sanctions on Iran to dampen South Korean petchem exports

US sanctions on Iran have forced South Korea to look for alternative sources of condensates, thereby impacting tonne-mile demand. Moreover, as Asian petchem consumption is likely to slow down, intra-regional trade will weaken and will therefore lead to lower charter rates for small gas carriers.


A watchful eye on both the LPG and LNG shipping sectors

Our gases shipping practice is highly respected in the industry and is regularly followed and referenced in both industry and mainstream media. The team is responsible for maintaining extensive information resources and conducting weekly, monthly and annual analysis on the sector and assessing the impact of macroeconomic as well as regulatory and environmental change on the sector. 

In addition to detailed market analysis and rigorous forecasting, we offer market leading analysis of both LPG and LNG shipping markets, covering all the principle vessel categories, as well as appraisals of shipping finances, including pricing, operating costs, vessel values and investment returns. We challenge conventional wisdom through our deep understanding of the trade dynamics driving demand for different vessel types in all corners of the world.

Our consultants typically provide commercial due diligence for investors and lenders and market entry strategies, including financial analysis, to shipowners and operators. Meanwhile, our team of financial research specialists provides actionable insight on the leading LPG and LNG shipowners. 

An elite and diverse group of industry stakeholders from shipowners, to charterers, port authorities, investors and financial intermediaries rely on our range of weekly, monthly and annual market research, sector expertise and commercial experience to help inform decisions, reduce costs and drive performance improvement.
