STEADY RISE PREDICTED FOR SHIPMENTS BY LNG, LPG TANKERS
Drewry Shipping Consultants Ltd. predicts strong growth in LNG and LPG seaborne shipments during the next few years. Outlook for liquefied gas trading has rarely been better, the London firm says. Seaborne trade in LNG will rise to 52 million metric tons this year from 45 million last year and only 40.9 million in 1987. This rapid growth will continue with shipments totaling 62.5-73.5 million metric tons in 1995. Growth in LPG seaborne trade has not been as brisk.
