A lone LNG carrier was sent for demolition in 2022 as the charter market fired up and demand for older vessels for conversion projects also rose.

According to brokers and TradeWinds own data, the only LNG carrier sold for scrap in 2022 was the 126,540-cbm, steam turbine vessel Dahlia (ex-Ocean Quest, built 1979).

The 33,141-ldt US-built vessel was sold on an “as is” basis in Malaysia.
