As Iran readies to unleash its tanker fleet into the international waters following a deal on lifting of nuclear sanctions agreed upon between Iran and the six world powers in Vienna, all eyes are on Iranian tanker capacity with industry analysts predicting how might the addition of this fleet influence the market conditions.
In today’s infographic we look at the country’s fleet of the laden Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) prepared by VesselsValue.
As shown in the infographic, oil-rich Iran is the 5th largest owner of laden VLCCs in the world by value $M.
Currently the country has 25 vessels with a total value of $1,449 million, amounting to 7.7 million DWT. This is equivalent to 56.7 million barrels of crude oil.

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.
Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?
Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.
