  • Increasing Access to Cleaner Burning LPG

    LPG is an economical and cleaner source of fuel which has a much lower carbon footprint than coal and oil. BW LPG is proud to be a leading maritime transporter of LPG that delivers and increases access to LPG across the globe.



  • Approximately three billion people across the developing world continue to rely on traditional solid fuels for cooking. This exposure to indoor air pollution has been tied to 4.3 million premature deaths annually. In India alone, indoor pollution from cooking with biomass is estimated to cause about 1.1 million deaths per year¹.

    Switching to LPG as a cleaner fuel, which is well-suited for domestic cooking, has the potential to improve the lives of these at-risk populations while providing additional economic and environmental benefits¹.

    Supported by the government’s push to increase LPG consumption in India, BW LPG is helping India increase its access to LPG by doubling the number of vessels in our fleet delivering LPG into India, with plans for further expansion. Our joint venture in India is now the largest owner and operator of VLGCs in India. As we bring LPG to uplift communities in India, we also generate sustainable economic value for our shareholders in the world’s second largest LPG consumer in the world.

    BW LPG is proud to be a key partner in increasing access to LPG in Egypt by participating in the commissioning of the Sonker Bulk Liquids Terminal.

    LPG is a key fuel in Egypt with 75% of households using LPG as the main source of fuel for cooking and heating. Egypt currently relies on LPG imports to meet over 50% of domestic demand. To ensure that infrastructure grows alongside demand for petroleum products within the country, the Sonker Bulk Liquids Terminal was built at a cost of over US$ 600 million to receive imported petroleum products and re-deliver them to national distribution pipeline networks.

  • In a year where there was financial hardship from furlough, retrenchments and closed businesses, we reached out to our local community to provide support

    In Singapore, we worked with local fuel products provider Union Gas Holdings Limited, and grassroots organisation People’s Association, to sponsor 1,600 low-income families who rely on government assistance and charities for sustenance, with LPG cylinders for cooking, with the aspiration to uplift these families one cooked meal at a time.

    BW LPG received positive feedback from the community on this engagement.
