What Makes This Study Special?

World Energy Consultants and Muse, Stancil & Co. have published the largest analytical study of waterborne LPG trade ever.  Covering the seaborne LPG imports and exports of 155 different countries using Kpler data, the study is available by subscription to any interested company or party.!

If your company is interested in international LPG trade and you had just one study to pick as your go-to resource, a repository like no other for the waterborne LPG industry, what would it be?  Up until now that question may have been difficult to answer, but not anymore.  World Energy Consultants, working jointly with Muse, Stancil & Co. and given exclusive use of Kpker’s LPG shipping data, has created a study of seaborne LPG trade that industry participants have only dreamed about up until now.

Led by World Energy Consultant’s CEO Craig Whitley, a former senior partner at highly respected international LPG consultancy Purvin & Gertz and former Head of Global LPG Analytics for BP, the study team of Whitley, Ajey Chandra and Ken Chow, all former gas and LPG consultants at Purvin & Gertz for many years, have produced a masterful study of international LPG trade that offers insight and expert opinions on the most pressing issues of the day.  

The study team’s 100 combined years of industry experience shines brightly in their explanations, summations and predictions that cover the most pertinent topics on the minds of everyone remotely involved in seaborne LPG trade, LPG distribution, new infrastructure projects, LPG shipping, project finance, etc.

Few consulting companies in the LPG space actually have consultants that have worked in the LPG industry.  Because of our vast experience in the industry, we like to think we’ve created the first LPG industry study that was designed and written “for the people, by the people.”  What this means to our potential subscribers is that they will be buying a study they will use and consult with regularly.  It’s just as much a “Bible” or “Handbook” of the seaborne LPG industry as it is an in-depth analysis of world LPG trade.

Having conducted many LPG industry studies over the years, we’ve listened to and learned from our subscribers.   Taking the insight we’ve gained from numerous client discussions over the years to guide and assist us in developing the blueprint for the Seaborne LPG Trade Yearbook, we were inspired and driven to create the greatest study of seaborne LPG trade ever published.  We truly believe we achieved this goal and feel you’ll form the same conclusion if you elect to subscribe to our study.

We tried to leave no stone unturned when preparing the Seaborne LPG Trade Yearbook.  Not only does the study provide a comprehensive analysis of global seaborne LPG trade trade flows and volumes, but we’ve also analyzed and discussed the key market factors and most pressing issues LPG industry executives are trying to manage in 2019 and the near-term years.  This includes commentary on new PDH projects in China, Canada, Egypt, Europe, etc., market drivers in Africa, identifying regions and countries where LPG demand and import growth are slowing down, declining LPG production in Mexico and Venezuela, new Autogas legislation in South Korea, arbitrage drivers, etc.
