Sector Expertise

LPG Shipping

The gas trade has witnessed rapid growth due to emergence of an increasing environmental consciousness among the emerging economies; alongside production increases in the US and other oil and gas producing countries.  In this context Drewry’s advisory team has been increasingly working with shipowners, traders, pure play investors and industrial users in the sector. The scope of work in LNG/LPG tankers has straddled a wide variety of assignments including market analysis, lender’s due diligence, asset valuation and seafreight strategy formulation.
