A series of attacks and detentions for oil cargo ships this year have made the Strait of Hormuz a geopolitical hotspot once again, harkening back 35 years to the so-called "tanker wars", part of the Iran-Iraq War.
The Trump administration's April decision to re-impose sanctions against Iran's oil exports, coupled with the Iranian government's bellicose rhetorical response looms large as the reason for the recent flare-up in the Strait of Hormuz.
The United States is expected to surpass Australia and Qatar to become the world's largest LNG(Liquified Natural Gas) exporter before 2025.
LNG is volatile, and those tankers may be more vulnerable to attack than oil tankers.

The food-delivery business can be split into two camps: mostly profitable veterans and loss-making newcomers.
The veterans, founded at the start of the century, are led by publicly traded Grubhub in America, and Just Eat and Takeway in Europe.
They account for the largest share of the market, offering customers online access to restaurants that already have their own delivery serives.
The newbies include
listed firms such as Meituan of China and Delivery Hero of Germany, Uber Eats, Ele.me and privately held DoorDash, based in San Francisco, and Deliveroo, from London.
For most of them, delivery is their core business, so they share their cut of the bill with riders as well as restaurants.
This substantially broadens the market.
The only mouthwatering aspect of the delivery business is its potential size.

listed firm. A company whose stock trades on a stock exchange, and conforms to listing requirements.
Astronomy and art have been inseparable for centuries.
In the era before digital CCD cameras and their predecessors, photographic plates, astronomers were required to be artists.
Today, whenever an image is taken of the cosmos, it's initially a monochromatic freeze-frame, and it takes careful layering and palette selection to bring images like the Pillars of Creation to life.
Drawing on principles from art to create scientific visualizations, astronomers are able to see their work with a new perspective and, perhaps more crucially, share their discoveries with other scientists more clearly than with traditional techniques.
Pillars of Creation is a photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Japan's communal exercise regime has barely changed since the health insurance bureau of the post office launched rajio taiso in November 1928.
After Japan's defeat in the second world war, allied forces banned rajio taiso becaouse of its close association with militarism.
Studies show that people who exercise this way for just a few minutes a day have improved bone density, reduced risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack, and are generally in better physical shape than other people their age who don't exercise.
