    Farewell to Perseverance & Affinity

    Having joined the company as a pair of newbuildings in 2005, it seems especially appropriate that these two sister ships should also depart together. Perseverance (now renamed River Shiner) was delivered to the new owners on 23 January, while Affinity (renamed Emerald Shiner) left our fleet nearly two weeks earlier on 10 January.

    The ships have served the company well for over eight years and, as the only two ships in our fleet with ICE-1A notation, they introduced us to a new dimension of ice trade with an array of unique photographs and stories brought back by those serving on board.

    We would like to thank all the staff who over the years looked after the ships and for ensuring a smooth change of ownership.

    TP reacquires full control of its two VLGCs

    Following a one-year period of evaluation, it was decided to undo the arrangement which was entered into in July 2012 with Avance Gas Holding Ltd (AGHL). Subsequently, on 19 August 2013 Transpetrol, on predefined terms and conditions, repurchased two very large gas carrier class ships (VLGCs), MV PROGRESS and MV PROSPECT, and simultaneously sold all its shares in AGHL back to the remaining shareholders.

    The manning and technical management of the two ships remains unchanged and will stay with Transpetrol TM AS, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.

    Delivery of MR tanker concludes fleet renewal

    The delivery of medium range (MR) tanker LUCTOR on 30 November 2011 marked the conclusion of our existing new building programme. Joining sister vessel TURMOIL which entered service in the previous month, LUCTOR can in addition to the usual petroleum products cater to a growing demand to carry a selection of commodities categorized as chemical. The name LUCTOR has in the past featured on two Transpetrol ships.

    The company’s current fleet consists of modern ships all built and delivered directly to us by leading shipyards in Korea and Japan, and at the end of 2011 the fleet has an average age of just under four years.

    Welcome to the fleet and good luck!
