Chemical tanker operator Stolt Tankers teams up with NYK, and ENEOS Ocean to launch the Stolt NYK Asia Pacific Services tanker pool.

Stolt Tankers will launch a new pool within its Stolt NYK Asia Pacific Services (SNAPS), with two 12,000 dwt tankers owned by ENEOS Ocean. The two units are expected to join the SNAPS Tanker Pool during the fourth quarter of 2023.

The agreement sealed by the three parties is effective immediately, and is expected to bolster their Asian tanker services.

Lucas Vos, president of Stolt Tankers said about the agreement reached: “By adding tonnage from Eneos Ocean’s top-tier platform, Stolt Tankers and NYK have demonstrated their ability to generate value in a highly competitive market. We expect these two ships to enhance our overall service offering across Asia by increasing logistical flexibility, while continuing to provide best-in-class environmental and safety standards.”

Vos also added that, “I am particularly pleased with this agreement as it expands Stolt Tankers’ presence in the region while expanding our tonnage partners in Japan. I would like to thank NYK and ENEOS Ocean for their dedication to bringing this partnership to life, and the trust they have placed in us.”
