The company has also entered into five-year time charters for two of its VLGCs. The charters are expected to commence during the third and fourth quarters of 2014.

Dorian LPG currently owns and operates three modern VLGCs and one pressurized LPG vessel. In addition, the company has 16 ECO VLGC newbuildings under construction and holds options for an additional three ECO VLGC newbuildings.
