The Singapore-based Hafnia Group has filled the only gap in its portfolio of product tanker pools with the creation of a new LR2 platform.

Hafnia is to join with long-time collaborators to launch “the Hafnia LR2 Pool by Reederei Nord, Chartworld and Hafnia.”

The three owners have been working together for years in Hafnia’s LR1 pool.

“We are incredibly proud to launch an LR2 pool with our long-standing LR1 partners Reederei Nord and Chartworld. With the LR1 and LR2 markets having a significant degree of overlap, we expect the synergies of the two pools to complement each other brilliantly and further extend the services we can offer our clients," said Peter Kolding, vice president for commercial and pool management.
