Anand takes up reins of Chemoil Asia and Middle East

Singapore: Chemoil has announced that Sanjay Anand, current md of Chemoil Logistics, has also assumed the role of md of Chemoil's Asia and Middle East operations. He replaces Karan Chabria, md for Chemoil Singapore, who has resigned with immediate effect. 

"With Karan's departure, Singapore's trading operations will continue to report to my office as in the past," said Douglas Long, vp of global supply and distribution. "We wish him the very best in his future endeavours."  

Anand currently heads the shipping, terminal and storage interests of the Chemoil Group, and will continue to head the logistics initiatives. He was formerly operations and technical director of an 80-vessel ship management company in Hong Kong for 11 years. Prior to that, he worked with Lloyd's Register of Shipping as an engineering surveyor for six years.

In September, Anand told Reuters that Chemoil aimed to capture almost half the bunker market in India's Gulf of Kutch over the next five years. [19/11/08]
