Scorpio charters-in LR2 as owned fleet keeps growing
Scorpio Tankers will charter-in a newbuild LR2 product tanker when it sails from a Korean yard in January 2015.

The latest chartered-in LR2 is contracted for one year at $21,050 per day, with an option to extend for a year at $22,600.

Scorpio has taken delivery of four of its own newbuildings so far this month, and 12 ships in the second quarter 2014.

From the latest deliveries, an LR2 product tanker delivered from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering in September and began a voyage of 45 days at approximately $30,000 per day. An SPP-built MR product tanker was fixed for 120 days at $17,000 per day and a pair of handymax ice class tankers from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard began 120-day charters at $14,750 per day.
