Oceangold Linked to MR2 Tanker Order

Greece-based shipping company Oceangold Tankers has reportedly placed an order for a pair of MR2 tankers at the South Korean shipyard STX Offshore.

Featuring 50,000 dwt each, the new tankers are scheduled to join their owner in 2019, according to data provided by VesselsValue.

Oceangold is said to be paying USD 32 million a piece for the new ships, which have a market value of around USD 33.1 million.

Once delivered, the newbuildings would become a part of Oceangold’s fleet, which currently consists of seven ships.

World Maritime News contacted Oceangold for more details on the shipbuilding contract, allegedly signed on June 21, however, the company is yet to reply.

The company’s fleet, comprising LR1, MR2 and one Panamax tanker, features a total size of over 500,000 dwt and has a value of around USD 123.2 million.
