Heidmar’s Sigma Tankers pool has passed the 50-ship mark thanks to the recent additions of ships from Indian and Greek shipowners.

Great Eastern Shipping, a long-established pool member, has recently committed its 110,537-dwt Jag Lyall (built 2006) to the pool from early October.
The Jag Lyall becomes the fifth tanker the Indian shipowner has placed in the Sigma pool and takes it past the 50-ship mark.

The move to the Heidmar pool comes less than a year after it was announced in November 2016 that it was joining the fleet of the Lars Dencker Nielsen-controlled Jellicoe Tankers.

In late August, Greek shipowner Chartworld Shipping said it would be adding two Aframaxes to the Sigma pool from September.

The 114,809-dwt sister ships Star Osprey and Star Swift (both built 2003) were named as the vessels joining the Aframax and long-range-two (LR2) tanker pool.
