Who We Are


BW LPG is a world leader in LPG shipping. We use pioneering technology to power our vessels with cleaner-burning liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and invest in R&D to take us towards a zero-carbon future. 

BW LPG was listed on the Oslo stock exchange in 2013, but we trace our heritage back to the 1930s. We are headquartered in Singapore and incorporated in Bermuda, and our global footprint spans seven countries. 

BW LPG is associated with BW Group, a leading global maritime company involved in shipping, floating infrastructure, deepwater oil & gas production, and new sustainable technologies. Founded in 1955 by Sir YK Pao, BW controls a fleet of over 420 vessels transporting oil, gas and dry commodities, with its 190 LNG and LPG ships constituting the largest gas fleet in the world. In the renewables space, the group has investments in solar, wind, batteries, biofuels and water treatment.

Our vision is to be Best on Water; our purpose is Towards a Better World, as we use LPG to power the world's energy transition. Our CARE values guide our corporate actions.

What We Do

We deliver cleaner-burning LPG to world markets. Our fleet of 44 Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGC) offer a total carrying capacity of over 3 million cubic metres (CBM). From spot voyages and time charters to Contracts of Affreightment (CoAs), our emphasis on flexible, reliable service has earned the trust of leading oil companies as well as trading and utility companies. 

Together with leading engine manufacturers, we pioneered the technology to propel large LPG carriers with LPG, and have invested over US$ 130 million to retrofit 15 of our Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs) with LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology, technology that is not only good for the planet, but great for operational efficiency. 

Our Strengths

We offer flexible and reliable service where we use our scale competence and experience to manage global operations covering all markets. We protect our reputation built over 50 years in LPG transportation and extend assurance of safe, efficient and sustainable shipping solutions to our customers.

Our large pool of experienced shore and sea employees are our pride and competitive advantage. We offer customers the world's only VLGCs to be retrofitted with LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology that have the sector's lowest emissions profile for long-haul voyages.
