Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide: LPG Shipping on a rally mode
April 15, 2014
"According to its latest report, Poten & Partners noted that 'while the large crude oil tankers slip into what seems like a second quarter slumber, buzz continues to build around the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) sector. Press headlines tout the recent success of LPG shipowners, many of whom are finally able to relish the fruits of their labor. Freight rates on the sector’s the largest vessels, Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs) are in uncharted territory, topping $100 per metric ton this week on the benchmark Arabian Gulf to Japan trade. As the supply for LPG continues to grow with increased natural gas and crude oil production, incremental seaborne transportation requirements will mount. As with other shipping markets, oversupply concerns are omnipresent, but, for now, the near-term future for LPG shipowners appears to be graced by the Midas touch,' the report noted."

Hellenic Shipping News: Tanker owners should not bet 'all-in' in Chinese oil market warns analyst
April 07, 2014
"China's importance as a consumer of raw materials for the shipping markets, both dry bulk, as well as tanker, is undoubtable. The rise of China's trade over the past decade or so has been instrumental towards altering the landscape for the shipping industry as well. According to a recent report from Poten & Partners, for the most part of the past decade, 'China has been the saving grace for the tanker, and other, shipping markets. While economic malaise pervaded in the West, China’s economic dragon appeared difficult to tame', it noted. "
 
Ship & Bunker: Fuel Costs Push LNG Bunker Development

"'The relative low price of natural gas and LNG compared to current high residual bunker and distillate fuel prices in the U.S and Europe has added to the attractiveness of LNG,' wrote Frederick Adamchak, an adviser at Poten & Partners."
 
Lloyd’s List: Euronav’s Rodgers takes helm at International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation
March 31, 2014
"Many improvements in procedures, vetting standards and operational safety were initiated as a result of the Exxon Valdez spill, ensuring that nearly all of the roughly 50m barrels transported by sea daily are delivered without incident, according to a new study released by Poten & Partners to mark the 25th anniversary."
 
Carbon Positive: Ton-mile growth for the VLCC tanker market to occur only if tonnage supply is moderated
March 27, 2014
"The market for VLCCs is an ever changing one and while new routes are emerging and there is optimism for a projected rise in ton-mile demand, the supply side of the market needs a closer look and attention. In its latest report, Poten & Partners noted that the spate of newbuilding activity across different tanker sectors could be evidence that a lemming-like approach to supply analysis is well underway."
 
Lloyds Fairplay: Unconventional gas may meet Asian demand
March 26, 2014
"While unconventional gas projects could generate extra gas to meet Asia's growing energy demands, there are significant hurdles to overcome before such resources begin generating gas, the Gastech 2014 conference has heard. So far, the United States is the only country to realise the potential of shale gas....Poten & Partners' LNG and gas manager Raj Rattanavich said China is taking policy steps toward expanding domestic production of shale gas."
 
Tradewinds: Vitol top line rises
March 24, 2014

It also has a series of newbuildings booked under the Vitol banner at SPP....According to Poten & Partners annual survey, Vitol was the fourth largest tanker charterer in 2013, behind only Unipec, Shell and BP and ahead of ExxonMobil....It fixed 426 dirty tankers last year, 4.4% of the global total, the shipbroker said in a report in January."
 
The Wall Street Journal: Interest, Power, Policy and Exporting U.S. Natural Gas
March 24, 2014
"The underlying principle of the liquid natural gas business is that in order for any single large, capital-intensive project ($12 billion-plus) to secure financing, there must be a buyer willing and capable of making the long-term volume and price commitment to off take LNG, allowing the project to move forward. That is no easy task because American LNG delivered to Europe may not be price-competitive against existing and already planned sources of supply. Further, Asian buyers have shown their willingness to pay a higher price than their European counterparts for the security of supply. In short, there is no guarantee that American LNG will ever reach Europe."
