BP aiming to lease LNG tanker amid rising day rates

BP Shipping is aiming to lease out its Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanker British Ruby, according to a news report.

Reuters said the firm is aiming to leave the British Ruby or its sister vessel for at least nine months from December 2019.

It comes while LNG charter day rates are at multi-year peaks as a result of incentives to divert Atlantic-produced supply east, while major consumers such as China ramp up imports.

It has lengthened ship journey times and tightened the availability of vessels.

Reuters said daily charter rates in the Atlantic have reached £64,821 compared to nearly £50,000 the previous week.

The news agency said it had seen a note inviting interest in the vessel by today.

British Ruby is 288metres in length and typically has a crew consisting  of around 29 officers and staff.

It has a capacity of almost 152,000 cubic metres.
