Ice Class Tanker Sector Report 2006
Although investment in ice class newbuildings slowed in 2006, shipping investors have still invested $8 billion in an orderbook that totals 203 vessels of 12.3m dwt. This is a staggering investment, driven by a booming tanker market and a rapidly expanding Russian oil industry. Demand for ice class tonnage will depend on the continued growth of Russian output and the export channels and associated shipping logistics that policy makers decide to develop. In this report we present the latest forecasts for output from the Baltic, Sakhalin and the exciting developments in the Russian Arctic. We also update all of the fleet, orderbook and sale and purchase statistics. This is an essential reference tool for anyone already involved in the ice class market or contemplating entry to this fast growing sector. The key areas we cover are:
Demand: The report reviews developments and growth estimates in oil regions that will require ice class tonnage. Although growth in the Baltic is set to mature over the coming years, developments in North Russia remain exciting if uncertain while the projects at Sakhalin in East Russia continue to have massive potential.
Orderbook: There are over 200 vessels on order, with over 140 of these ice class 1A. This report will provide the latest orderbook listings split by ice class notation besides a profile of the top builders and owners.
Fleet: Our records show that the ice strengthened fleet has grown to 1,141 vessels and is set for aggressive growth over the coming years. Using the orderbook profile and MARPOL Regulation 13G phase out analysis, we provide a detailed fleet forecast, split by ship size range and ice notation.
New Material: Besides updating our review of ice breaker capacity, we include a new chapter discussing the potential requirement for ice class LNG Tankers. Our report also includes a listing of ice class tankers in the format of Clarksons popular Tanker Register.
