Grant Sims, Genesis’ Chief Executive Officer, said, “The acquisition of these high quality vessels represents a significant step forward in the development of our marine transportation of crude oil and heavy refined petroleum products. The integration of organic projects with focused external acquisitions is designed to expand our customer base and capabilities, creating long-term value for all our stakeholders.”
