India’s Sanmar Shipping has gone back to Maersk Tankers’ pool operation to help it cut emissions.

The Chennai-based tanker and LPG carrier owner has placed the 106,500-dwt LR2 Sanmar Sangeet (built 2004) with the Danish operator.

Sanmar was attracted by the two companies’ shared determination to decarbonise, as well as the trading strategy of the LR2 pool.

“The latter has led to strong earnings, in particular over the past few quarters,” Maersk Tankers said.
