VLGC BW Gemini at Enterprise Terminal
Very Large Gas Carrier BW Gemini at Enterprise Terminal

BW Product Services was established in February 2019, with the aim to diversify our business offerings, innovate to capture market opportunities, and maximise value for both customers and shareholders.

The team provides customers with reliable, integrated LPG delivery services, by purchasing LPG and offering it delivered directly to buyers and/or receivers.

A natural step forward

In August 2022, BW LPG announced the acquisition of the LPG trading operations from Vilma Oil. The acquisition brings a highly experienced team with a strong track record to BW LPG.  With an expanded Product Services team, BW LPG has scaled its offering to provide even better service to customers while continuing to operate within disciplined capital requirements and defined risk thresholds.

The transaction was successfully completed in November 2022. Led by BW Product Services CEO Amalio Hidalgo, the new team offers a truly global reach, and serve customers from offices in Singapore, Oslo and Madrid.

BW LPG is the world’s largest owner and operator of Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs). Having the world’s largest fleet of LPG carriers gives us the capacity and flexibility to offer timely and reliable services anywhere in the world, providing 24/7 commercial and operational support to our customers.

A pioneer in the use of LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology

We also have the world’s largest fleet of LPG-powered VLGCs – 15 of our vessels are retrofitted with LPG dual-fuel propulsion technology and serve our customers with the sector’s lowest emissions profile. This is our commitment to sustainable development, which we pursue while keeping our focus on safe and reliable operations, so that we can continue to provide industry-leading customer service and generate better returns for our shareholders.
