Global LPG

GX’s Global LPG data service will focus on the key waterborne markets – Europe, Asia and the US.   Following CIF Large Cargoes assessments for both Propane and Butane in NWE, our Asia assessments will launch later in 2021, with the US to follow shortly after.  True to the GX philosophy, our focus is on providing low-cost, high-quality LPG benchmarks that follow market-accepted methodologies enabling easy adoption.
