Sovcomflot linked with LPG carrier sale to NITC

Sovcomflot is linked with the en bloc sale for a pair of LPG carriers.

Sources tell Splash the nine-year-old SCF Tomsk and 10-year-old SCF Tobolsk have been sold to Iran’s NITC for a total of $60m.

While best known for its crude tanker fleet, NITC has steadily been building its LPG fleet in the wake of the lifting of sanctions against Iran earlier this year.
