AET, owner of tankers, secured its first contract with Shell. The contract is for the charter of a dynamic positioning tanker

The DWT DP2 vessel will be built by a Korean shipyard with delivery scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020 and, although destined for Brazilian waters, the vessel will be able to operate globally. It will comply with IMO NOx Tier 3 requirements, built to the latest and highest technical standards and fitted with a ballast water treatment system.

Mark Quartermain, Vice President, Shell Trading and Supply Crude, said the addition of the new transport tanker to its operations in Brazil supports the company's deepwater activities.

“This contract will provide more flexibility for our oil trading business as we look to serve our global customers with Brazil's growing offshore production. We look forward to building our relationship with AET to support our trading operations,” he said.

While this may be AET's first charter for Shell, this is not the first time that AET has been awarded a contract to ship its tankers to Brazilian territory.

In May of this year, AET expanded its partnership in the DP2 shuttle tanker sector with the Brazilian oil company Petrobras.

The contract was awarded to own and operate four DP2 Suezmax tankers specialized in long-term charter by Petrobras. These new vessels will be in addition to the two AET DP2 vessels currently in chartered operation in the Brazil Basin for Petrobras.

The four 152.000 DWT DP2 tankers will be built by a Korean shipyard for delivery in 2020 and will be contracted by Petrobras for operations in international and Brazilian waters.
