Top players in the tanker industry

In 2014, Euronav took over 19 super tankers (VLCC’s) from Maersk. As a result, their fleet now numbers 26 VLCC’s and 23 Suezmax vessels, which are designed to exploit the available width and depth of the Suez Canal in Egypt. For Euronav purchase of these ships constitutes the first step toward a broader consolidation of the worldwide tanker fleet. Euronav is now a major world-class operator with respect to the storage and seaborne transport of crude oil and petroleum products.
