Energy cargoes trade flows
LNG (liquefied natural gas), crude oil and its distillates have been playing a major role in the formation of global flows of energy through intermodal transportation. The subject of this thesis is to point out the global flows of energy cargos and also to provide data of any future change on the transportation work of all means involved. In the first chapter there is the presentation of the structure of the LNG market and the presentation of the current global trade flows. In the second chapter, which is about crude oil, an analysis of crude oil market is processed and its trade flows are presented. The same motive is followed in the third chapter, which refers to refined petroleum products. The fourth and last chapter of this master thesis examines the impact of the trade flows of the afore-mentioned cargoes on global trade and charter rates and presents the possible credibility in particular types of vessels.
