Tanker Weekly – May 16, 2010

Baltic Dirty Tanker Index rose 10.3%; Baltic Clean Tanker Index rose 1.1%.

International Energy Agency (IEA) reduced demand figures (especially on the call for OPEC crude and estimates of increased OECD stocks day cover) did not lower the rates, just contrary. Strong dirty and soft clean rates could again be a sign of weak demand and strong supply for crude oil and derivatives.
