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 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 490 vessels transporting oil, gas and dry commodities, with its 200 LNG and LPG ships constituting the largest gas fleet in the world.

What We Do

We deliver cleaner-burning LPG to world markets with our fleet of Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs). From spot voyages and time charters to Contracts of Affreightment (CoAs), our emphasis on safe, flexible, and 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 safe, flexible, and reliable shipping services 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.

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