Global LNG shipping – orders and deliveries

Report summary

Spot charter rates weakened in April to US$43,800/day. This was due to increased vessel availability as demand for spot cargoes remained weak moving into the shoulder season. With European gas inventories unusually high for the time of year, restocking resumed slowly. So far in 2023, a total of 26 new LNG carrier orders have been placed. Most orders have been booked with Korean shipyards and only 8% with Chinese yards. This compares to 30% of total orders in 2022. Three new LNG carriers were confirmed in April and newbuild costs continue to climb.
