Bluewater Energy Services Jettyless LNG Terminals

Building on more than 40 years of experience in the design and operation of Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems, Bluewater has developed cost effective solutions for LNG transfer. The Bluewater Jettyless LNG Terminals are an alternative for conventional LNG ports. A typical range of Bluewater LNG terminals is available for individual needs, including systems for small- and large-scale import or export of LNG or other liquified gasses

This spate of orders in January continues the momentum of 2022, which saw record-shattering orders for LNG carriers valued at a whopping US$39Bn. According to Clarksons Research managing director Steve Gordon, shipyards signed deals to construct a record 182 LNG carriers. At 36% of compensated gross tons (CGT), LNG carriers represented the largest shipbuilding segment in the global order book, followed by 350 container ships (29% CGT) and 69 car carriers (2.4% CGT).

WTF is the world going to do with 182 additional LNG carriers?
