Seatrade journalist casts light on tanker trades with new book

Seatrade journalist casts light on tanker trades with new book

Dalian: A new book co-written by Seatrade's East Asia editor, Sam Chambers, casts light on many of the thorny issues the tanker trades wish were not discussed. Oil on Water - Tankers, Pirates and the Rise of China, published by London's Zed Books, covers topical challenges facing the industry including crewing shortages, the environment and China's growing thirst for oil.
"East Asia's growing share of the 2 trillion tons of oil shipped each year across the world's oceans is one of the great, but little-told, stories of our age," wrote the UK's Guardian newspaper in a review of the book. "By tracking this very literal shift of power from West to East, the authors provide invaluable insights into energy security, environmental pressure and areas of potential conflict and cooperation."
