Years of LPG Shipping Experience
Meeting growing demand with decades of operating experience
BW LPG India was established in 2017 as a joint venture between BW LPG Limited and Global United Shipping India Private Limited, to own and operate India-flagged Very Large Gas Carriers or VLGCs to ship LPG within Indian waters. BW LPG India is technically managed by Synergy Group, and commercially and operationally managed by Synergy Group and BW LPG.
Rapid expansion of LPG VLGC fleet
From a modest beginning of 2 LPG vessels, our fleet expanded rapidly in the first five years. Buoyed by strong demand, our fleet has grown to comprise 8 world-class, India-flagged Very Large Gas Carriers in 2022.
