Norway’s Nordic American Tankers (NAT) has won a one-year charter for a suezmax at a rate illustrating continued improvement for owners.

The New York-listed company said an unnamed 2010-built tanker was fixed by “one of the world’s largest energy companies” at a rate in excess of $ 30,000 per day.

The company says it has a breakeven level of $8,000 per day on average.
