Advancing the Next Generation of Gas Carriers 


Shipowners and operators take confidence in the knowledge that carriers classed by ABS are held to the highest standards of safety, regulatory compliance and construction quality. Going beyond classification services, ABS joins forces with companies in the gas industry to develop innovative solutions for efficient, environmentally responsible gas transportation systems.


For more than 50 years, ABS has classed LPG and LNG carriers – including the first conversion of a cargo vessel to carry LPG, the first purpose-built LNG carrier and the first Very Large Ethane Carrier (VLEC). Leveraging our decades of experience with LPG and LNG carriers, ABS is supporting the next generation of the gas carrier fleet, including today’s most advanced projects surrounding CO2, Hydrogen, Ammonia and Volatile Organic Compound carriers. Building on teamwork and applying our unrelenting drive to reimagine gas transportation solutions for the next generation of shipping, ABS is a trailblazer for the entire industry.
