Tanker market report dated 22 June 2018

25 June 2018

It has been three years since the Chinese government first allowed the independent refineries to directly purchase crude oil on the open market, provided they met certain conditions. At the beginning, eleven independents were licenced to import just over 49 million barrels of crude in the first year of operation. By 2018, the government, as part of their aim to tackle environmental issues, announced even tighter regulations and taxation on the independent refiners and blenders in an effort to weed out small operations and deal with tax evading players. The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.
