BW Maritime

LNG Shipping

BW is one of the world’s largest owners and operators of LNG carriers with a history of over 40 years within the segment. Our first existing LNG vessel was delivered in 2003 and we currently own and operate a fleet of 20 LNG carriers, including four newbuildings.

In the LNG sector, BW has partnerships with major energy companies such as Engie, Marubeni and Pavilion Energy.

The BW team works closely with charterers and partners to ensure reliable and safe deliveries of LNG cargos. Both the commercial and technical management of our LNG carriers are handled from the Oslo office. We have a strong focus on HSEQ and focus on delivering  high quality service in our daily operations.

All our vessels are manned by officers and crew employed by BW. The company has a large pool of officers and crew with relevant gas experience. We have also, in some areas, established local recruiting programmes for our customers. This access to a large pool of qualified officers is a clear advantage in the LNG market.

BW has strong ambitions to grow within the LNG shipping segment as exemplified by the three newbuilding vessels we have at DSME due for delivery between 2017 and 2019. These vessels are with state-of-the-art technology with a size of 173,400cbm, ME-GI propulsion and low boil-off rates of 0.03% (Full Reliquefaction System) and 0.075% (Partial Reliquefaction System). The vessels are tailored to meet the next generation LNG shipping requirements.
