Tanker market report dated 4 January 2019

Late in 2018, China issued a raft of additional refined product export quotas to cope with a domestic oversupply of fuel. These additional volumes were partly responsible for the strength of the Asian product tanker market towards the end of 2018 and the persistent weakness in the Asian oil products markets. For many the question is therefore: what will Chinese refined product export volumes look like in 2019, and can they help sustain the regional product tanker market?  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

Over the past few weeks, MRs trading out of Europe have continued to outperform expectations. In recent years, such volatility has typically been driven by erratic buying from West Africa, or stronger demand in Latin America. Volumes destined for the United States have rarely been a driver of volatility, generally ticking over at a steady and predictable pace. However, a combination of both anticipated and unanticipated events has temporarily shifted the dynamic in the Atlantic product tanker market.

Much of the current market focus is on crude supply, with sanctions, outages and unplanned disruptions impacting on supply. But with IMO2020 just around the corner, fundamental changes in the products market are afoot, with the market dynamics set to drastically shift as we move closer to the end of the year. The market for middle distillates (primarily gasoil, diesel and jet fuel) could be set for a seismic shock – in stark contrast to current market fundamentals.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

The scrubber debate continues with the same intensity as it did six months ago, although there appear to be fewer announcements for new installations. According to the DNV GL, the number of new bookings for fittings during 2019 decelerated over the past couple of months. It remains to be seen whether this slowdown is attributable to a diminishing appetite for scrubbers or limitations in yard/manufacturing/equipment capacity. On the face it, perhaps the latter is true since the interest in installations over the course of 2020 continues to grow, although absolute numbers are much lower versus 2019 figures The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

Earlier in 2019, we published a market report into how the surge in Chinese refined product exports had a profound effect on the product tanker market. However, with significant new refining capacity coming online in China this year, it is important to assess where the additional crude supply will come from. With two of China’s key suppliers under sanctions, and many others participating in output cuts, procuring the additional volumes demanded may not be as simple as before. Where will China turn?  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

According to a recent IEA report, 2019 is expected to see the largest wave of refinery capacity additions since the 1970’s. The Agency expects that 2.6 million b/d of new capacity will initiate operations this year. In terms of pure volumes, this is of course a bullish sign for the product tanker market, but what really matters is how global product flows shape up.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

Not so long ago, a lot of tanker and dry cargo owners had been fiercely opposed to the installation of exhaust gas cleaning technology. However, the attitude is rapidly starting to change. Following a surprise announcement by Frontline and DHT a few months ago to install scrubbers on their fleets, we have seen a notable increase in other owners committing to the installation as well.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.

Winter has typically been a period of stronger earnings and higher freight volatility for the tanker sector. However, the winter of 2017/2018 was a disappointment across all sectors, despite it being particularly cold in the Northern hemisphere. As analysts, this has made forecasting the 2018/2019 season all the more challenging.  The weekly tanker market report by Gibson Shipbrokers features an overview of the crude oil and oil product tanker market.
