VLCC Tango
Product tanker Challenge Prelude

Providing transportation services based on consideration for the environment and safety

Liquid Transport (Crude Oil, Clean Petroleum Product, Chemical and LPG) division operates very large crude carriers (VLCCs) that transport crude oil; product tankers* that carry petroleum products; chemical tankers that transport chemical products and other Liquid Transport chemical products; and LPG tankers that carry LPG and ammonia. The division provides transport service for major petroleum companies, petrochemical companies, and energy companies around the world.

Most of the vessels in our fleet of VLCCs operate under long-term contracts with specific customers, such as major oil companies from Japan and many other countries, which results in a highly stable profit structure. LPG tankers and chemical tankers also provide stable earnings under long-term contracts. Product tankers have been affected by market changes, but fleet expansion is aimed to accommodate anticipated demand.

The division is implementing thorough measures to ensure safety in vessel operations. With the introduction of the NYK Group's NAV9000 safety standards, safety in vessel operations is being continually supported. The implementation of safety standards is periodically audited, and necessary improvements are administered as needed. In addition, all vessels have double-hull structures, and environmental-contamination countermeasures are prepared in case of any unanticipated accidents. These initiatives, based on consideration for the environment and safety, have been highly evaluated by our customers.
