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.

With Asian LNG prices trading at a premium to European prices for most of June and July, it became more profitable to send Atlantic basin LNG supply into the Pacific basin. Rates climbed to US$67,000/day in early July before remaining stable for the rest of the month. Looking forward, a build up of floating storage will put upward pressure on rates moving into late Q3. So far in 2023, a total of 32 new LNG carrier orders have been placed, with four confirmed in June. Tightness in berth availability at South Korean shipyards remains for 2027 deliveries, driven by large reservations on shipbuilding capacity by QatarEnergy and the Mozambique LNG project.
