Crude Oil Tankers

Crude Oil Tankers

Ensuring we deliver flexibility and reliability to our global customers, we own a young fleet of around 80 crude tankers.

Our large tanker fleet comprises VLCCs and Suezmax tankers which trade globally, mostly on long-term charters for oil companies and traders. Our increasing presence in this sector complements and strengthens our fleet profile.

In line with customer expectations, our new tonnage benefits from the latest eco-design innovations to reduce environmental impact and deliver fuel efficiency.

We own one of the largest Aframax fleets in the world, including four which are fitted with dynamic positioning (DP). Our ships are a mix of owned and in-charters. Around 30 vessels are dedicated to our US Gulf lightering operation and the remainder are engaged on the spot and time-charter market, mainly in Asia but with a global capability.

Anticipating changing trading patterns, we will continue to reshape our fleet to ensure we retain the optimum profile to service the global needs of our customers.
