New shuttle tanker
May 30, 2008 9:01 AM
Construction has begun on the eighth tanker in a series of 12 at the Aker American Philadelphia PA Shipyard, according to Aker information.
The 46,000 deadweight tonnage (dwt) tanker will be converted to a shuttle tanker for use in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico. Shuttle tankers transport crude oil from deepwater areas where there are no available pipelines. When completed, the vessel will be sold to the yard’s sister ship-owning company, Aker American Shipping, and in turn, leased to OSG America.
