LPG Carriers

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is produced by refining crude oil or "wet" natural gas. The seaborn transportation of this commodity involves specialised vessels, a ship manager with the necessary technical and operational expertise, as well as dedicated, qualified crew. Any delays in the loading, voyage and discharge phases can lead to cargo loss in the form of boil-off gas.

We vet, hire and train our crew to the highest standards to handle this specialised cargo through our Crew Service Centres (CSCs) and Maritime Training Centres (MTCs).

We have more than 50 years of experience in the management of gas carriers, including the provision of design and gas consultancy services. Over 120 gas carriers are currently managed by BSM to the extremely high standards of the industry stakeholders.

BSM’s experience of the segment covers all vessel and cargo systems, ranging from smaller semi and fully pressurized units to medium-sized and very large fully refrigerated vessels, including Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs). In addition, BSM manages a fleet of sophisticated ethylene carriers.
