Odfjell Takes 50% Of Brazilian Shipper
Wednesday, October 20, 1999
Norwegian chemical tanker operator Odfjell last week acquired a 50 percent stake in Brazilian shipping company Flumar. Odfjell said the purchase would mean an investment of $10 million and would result in a strengthening of both companies' positions in the region. Flumar operates three chemical tankers and vessels for liquefied petroleum gases and sails mainly along the Brazilian coast. Odfjell operates more than 60 vessels in a global network.
