What’s inside?

Our report identifies LNG transportation trends in shipping, including changes in LNG ship charter rates, order and delivery patterns.

It comes with a complete set of data on the LNG transportation fleet and order book, including a list of all new LNG ship orders and deliveries for 2018/ 2019.

Through Q3 2023, LNG spot charter rates picked up at a similar trajectory as was seen during Q3 2022. Rates began to climb from US$70,000/day in early August to around US$135,000/d by the end of August. They continued to climb through to the third week of September, peaking at around US$200,000/day. This is somewhat earlier than in recent years, where we have seen charter rates peaking during late October/mid-November. In July and August, only 10 LNG carrier orders were confirmed, compared to 2022 it was 20 orders were confirmed. However, in September, QatarEnergy (QE) inked slots for 17 LNG carriers at Hyundai shipyard, greenlighting the second phase of its huge LNG shipbuilding programme.
