Tanker fleet development m dwt No Assumptions for period until 2009: Scheduled phase out for the period: 15.5 m dwt including 4.2 m dwt that should already have been phased out earlier than 2007 Assumed removals 2007 – 2009: 29 m dwt (including conversion + other demolition)
(Single Hull) Tanker Phase Out - an “uncertainty” post 2010 m dwt Assumptions : MARPOL phase out allows for trading until the age of 25 years old, max 2015 The EU alternative does not allow SH trading after 2010. DB/DS can trade until the age of 25 years old, but here cut off 2015 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 200320042005 2006 200720082009 2010 2011201220132014 2015 MARPOL (min phase out - trading of SH until 25 years) EU + no SH after 2010 OPA90
Chemical Carrier Fleet 70% of fleet double hull, almost all of remainder double bottom or double side – average age 11.5 years, Large order book (37% of existing fleet by dwt), Significant changes to MARPOL Annex II from Jan 2007, principally in carriage of veg oils – several uncertainties.
