Sector Expertise

LPG Shipping

The emergence of shale oil and gas, establishment of refineries in emerging countries and the price divergences have altered the conventional trade pattern of LPG. 

The changing dynamics are well-captured by Drewry gas shipping team. We have been undertaking regular bespoke studies on LPG shipping sectors to cater to the needs of financial institutions and investors.
