Maersk Tankers says its Intermediate pool is delivering strong earnings and attracting new partners.

The latest addition — the third new entrant to the pool in 2022 — is Argentina’s Bahia Grande with its 17,000-dwt clean carrier Ayane (built 2010).

Maersk Tankers said product tanker markets continue to see high spot rates and exceptional volatility between regions and markets.

“This offers shipowners the opportunity to secure high earnings, providing they can position their ships to match earning spikes, but it also exposes them to risk if their timing is wrong,” it added.
