Global LNG Carriers

Global LNG Carriers

April 1, 2019

There were a total of 525 vessels in the LNG fleet by the end of 2018, including those vessels actively trading, sitting idle available for work, and acting as FSRUs. Of the total global LNG leet, there are 31 FSRUs and five floating storage units. The overall global LNG fleet grew by 11.5% in 2018, as 53 carriers were added to the fleet, including four FSRUs.

The global LNG fleet growth was matched by 26.2 MTPA of new liquefaction capacity in 2018.
