Norden has relaunched what was known as the Norient Product Pool and is out to find prospective new members at a time when product tanker markets are on the up.

The pool has been known as Norden Tanker Pools (NTP) since the beginning of September to reflect the more open nature of the business — the days of it being a joint venture with Interorient are long gone, although the company remains a key partner in the pool, according to Soren Huscher, Norden’s head of pool management.
