The vessels will be designated on a long-term charter to Dynergy Global Liquids, and operated by Chevron. They are expected to enhance Dynergy's ability to move large volumes of LPG at competitive market rates.

With a laden speed of 17 knots, the vessels will transport volumes of propane and butane to global markets, as well as being able to trade to eastern and western hemisphere markets.
