BW Maritime

LNG Shipping


Since the delivery of our first world-scale LNG carrier in 2003, BW Boston, our fleet has grown to a total of 21 LNG carriers, with four more newbuilds scheduled for delivery the coming years. 

BW has partnered with leading energy companies in the LNG shipping sector (both private and government led) and we have a strong focus on HSEQ and operational excellence to ensure high-quality services in our daily operations as well as reliable and safe deliveries of LNG cargoes worldwide. 

The commercial and technical management of our LNG carriers are handled in-house from our offices in Oslo, and all our vessels are manned by officers and crew with relevant gas experience employed by BW’s large pool of employees, providing additional flexibility in our operations. 

BW LNG’s commitment to the environment is well-reflected in our recent newbuilding programme that comprises nine state-of-the-art 173,400-174,000 cbm vessels delivered by DSME. Equipped with ME-GI propulsion systems for industry-low fuel consumption and a significantly lower methane slip compared to competing 2-stroke technology and older tonnage; active  boil-off rates of 0.03% (with Full Reliquefaction System – FRS) and 0.075% (with Partial Reliquefaction System – PRS), these vessels are tailored to meet the next generation LNG shipping requirements.
