Brightoil takes delivery of 107,500DWT Aframax tanker

Hong-Kong listed Brightoil Petroleum (Holdings), a marine bunkering service provider in China, has taken delivery of its first ocean-going tanker in Singapore.

The vessel was purchased in November 2009 for US$52.5 million.

The double-hulled Aframax oil tanker, with a capacity of 107,500DWT, has an overall length of 243.8 metres. Built in Japan in 2009, it is coupled with three sets of cargo pumps with maximum discharge rate of 9,000 cubic metres per hour.

The vessel is built to Common Structural Rules (CSR), the latest standard for newly-built tankers, featuring increased strength requirements and durability of hull structures to make it safer and more dependable to operate.

The oil tanker will mainly be used for transporting fuel oil or crude oil internationally.

"The delivery of our first ocean-going oil tanker represents a milestone for Brightoil Petroleum in rolling out its marine transportation business," said Dr. Sit Kwong Lam, Chairman and CEO of the Brightoil.
