A Leading Player in LNG

BW LNG creates floating solutions for LNG to support progress towards a low-carbon society. 

The world urgently needs to move to a low carbon society. LNG is a part of the solution, and BW LNG creates floating solutions for LNG to support this development.

We are a global company with over 40 years of experience owning and operating LNG assets from offices around the world. After an expansion in the early 2000s which secured us a number of longer-term charters, we now own a fleet of 30 LNG carriers and Floating Storage and Regasification Units. 

We strive to be a true long-term partner for responsible growth, delivering a positive impact for our customers, our communities, our planet, and ourselves, beyond providing competitive solutions for our clients’ gas infrastructure and shipping needs.

Efficient LNG Shipping

At BW LNG, we never settle for less. Since we acquired our first LNG vessel in 1973, we have been building our operational competency without losing focus on safety and the environment. Through a combination of engineering design, technical management, and crew training, we have become an efficient and reliable energy provider for our customers and partners from many parts of the world. We take pride in the design of our vessels and operational standards as they enable us to achieve best-in-class safety statistics and environmental performance.

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.

Acting for the future

BW LNG is a global pioneer in next-generation, high-tech green shipping

BW LNG cherishes our shared planet, and we strive for Zero Harm to the environment. In addition to setting yearly targets for fuel efficiency and emission improvements on our vessels and fleet, we use our technological, financial, legal, and commercial competence to actively develop innovative solutions that reduce our vessels’ emissions and environmental footprint. In 2023, we succeeded in lowering our total carbon emissions by 5.4% and improving our EEOI by 1.7%.

BW LNG’s commitment to the environment is well-reflected in our recent newbuilding programme that comprises 9 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.
