Splash Extra: Perfect storm sees VLCC rates leap

The November issue of Splash Extra launches today with a look at the volatile VLCC rates and where they might head in the final five weeks of the year.

The subscription title – available for as little as $100 a year – carries the views of many of the world’s top tanker analysts, all of whom appear bullish on prospects for more six-digit earnings in the weeks ahead.

Inside, we ask readers what they think has been the most important shipping story of the decade, while the Splash Extra analysis team gets to grips with what has been driving the dry bulk, container and tanker markets over the last month.

This issue’s main feature takes the pulse of the 120+ shipowners we have welcomed to our events in Monaco and Hong Kong over the last five weeks and finds out why owners are holding back from ordering ships, with irritation growing at regulatory intransigence.

Finally, when it comes to navigating all the inevitable inbound environmental regulations coming shipping’s way our special correspondent suggests there’s a role for shipping’s experienced generation, those who joined in the 1980s and witnessed the introduction of OPA90, shipping’s last big disrupting moment.

As a one-off today we are giving Splash readers free access to the November issue of Splash Extra. Take a look through the title, shipping’s most essential monthly insight, and contemplate an annual subscription for 2020 ahead of a price rise we will be introducing for new subscribers from January.
