Nepline To Sell Tankers For $38M

Thursday, October 19, 2000
Malaysian shipping firm Nepline Bhd agreed to sell two crude oil tankers to American Eagle Tankers Inc for $38 million cash. The sales were driven by the recent decision by the European Shipowners' Association to impose restrictions on all single-hull tankers plying European and American waters by 2002. "Although the decision has yet to be enforced, it has prompted Nepline to plan for replacing its single-hull tankers with newer double-hull oil tankers," it said. Nepline said proceeds from the sale would be mainly used to settle the offshore bank borrowings originally taken up to finance the acquisition of the vessels in 1996.
