Gas Transportation

Since 1969 SLOMAN NEPTUN has been active in the operation of pressurized and semi-refrigerated LPG - as well as Ethylene tankers.

Today 16 modern ships with a capacity between 3000 and 10000 CBM are trading world-wide.

All vessels are employed within the UNIGAS consortium, one of the leading gas tanker pools. All in all, UNIGAS has a fleet of 47 vessels under commercial management.

The pool is operated by UNIGAS INTERNATIONAL B.V, Rotterdam, UNIGAS INTERNATIONAL INC., Houston and UNIGAS INTERNATIONAL LTD., Hong Kong, in which all we are major shareholders.

UNIGAS specializes in the safe and efficient carriage of petrochemical and petroleum gases on a worldwide basis, with the solid foundation of long-term contracts of affreightment with many of the major international oil and chemical companies.

The consortium is able to offer the service and flexibility expected in today`s rapidly changing global product and shipping market. This is enhanced by UNIGAS operating a large, modern fleet of technologically advanced vessels which meet or exceed the highest quality and operating standards.

In addition to the above vessels, we have taken delivery in 2011 of a 20.600 cbm semi-refrigerated new building. The gas tanker, named MT “Sloman Ariadne”, is employed on a long term charter.
