BP has sold a trio of 12-year-old MR product tanker sister ships. Greece’s Unibros has been linked as the buyers of the British Unity, British Loyalty and British Liberty – all 46,803 dwt, built at Hyundai Mipo in 2004. The epoxy-coated ships are costing $12.4m each with one of them, British Liberty, marked down as on option still.
BP Shipping has pared back its fleet dramatically this year, opting to sell off many of its ships that are older than 12. At the start of this month Tsakos Energy Navigation was linked with taking a pair of BP aframaxes, while Indonesia’s Soechi Lines took two MR product tankers from the British energy giant in late September.
