No uptick for chemical tankers for at least 12 months: Stolt-Nielsen

One of the best known names in the chemical tanker business sees no uptick in this sector for 12 months.

Speaking while unveiling his company’s second quarter results, Niels Stolt-Nielsen, CEO of Stolt-Nielsen, said: “Our outlook remains cautious. We do not expect a significant improvement in the chemical tanker market until most of the current orderbook has been delivered, which, barring any new orders, is expected to be in the second half of 2018.”

Stolt-Nielsen made a net profit of $15.6m in the second quarter, a result the CEO described as “disappointing”.
