It was a rough week for VLCCs.

According to Tankers International fixtures data, most of the week’s fixtures were estimated to be loss-making — and three were done under $10,000 per day.

The pool operator said the 303,000-dwt Lita (built 2019) was fixed on subs for $5,000 per day on Tuesday to Sasol for a voyage from the Middle East Gulf to South Africa for loading in early July.
