Tanker Division

The product tanker freight rates continued to be under pressure in the second quarter of 2012, as global economic indicators were sluggish. Most notably, this included the continued European financial crisis and decreasing GDP growth in both China and the USA, which negatively impacted the global oil consumption and subsequently the oil product transportation.

In the West, MR freight rates were negatively affected by the closed gasoline and diesel arbitrage between the European Continent and the USA, weaker US East Coast product demand and higher utilization in the US refineries. In addition, the MR freight rates were hampered by an overall migration of vessels from the East.
