BP Shipping's LNG vessels

Delivering more energy with fewer emissions

Fit for the future  

 

With the global liquefied natural gas (LNG) trade predicted to grow seven times faster than pipeline gas, BP Shipping’s new Partnership class vessels are an invaluable addition to the fleet.

 

Around half of BP’s upstream portfolio is currently gas, and the business expects that to grow as more major projects come online. Natural gas, and LNG in particular, will form a major part of this growth – the 'Evolving Transition' scenario in BP's 2017 Energy Outlook forecasts that global LNG trade will grow seven times faster than pipeline gas trade. And the new Partnership class carriers will play a vital role in transporting these increased volumes safely and efficiently from the points of production to customers.
