Article on the glut of new crude oil tankers currently hitting the market.

For Tanker Owners, Shrinking Oil Glut Is Least of Their Worries

https://gcaptain.com/for-tanker-owners-shrinking-oil-glut-is-least-of-their-worries/

slightly off topic, if your reading the article above take a look at the 'scuttling on the Viz' video just to its right about two thirds of the way down.

This will probably be an interesting read for many here...

People in these forums are always asking how do institutions and proprietary trading firms trade. Well Vitol is an institution in the oil markets. As you read this, and they talk about different deals, try to imagine how someone like Vitol trades in the futures markets...

@SMCJB - thank you

Some background/ general info on Vitol


Quoting 
Though physical trading, logistics and distribution are at the core of the business, these are complemented by refining, shipping, terminals, exploration and production, power generation, mining and retail businesses. Vitol has almost 40 offices worldwide and its largest operations are in Geneva, Houston, London, and Singapore. With revenues of $270 billion in 2014, it is the largest independent energy trader in the world, and would rank eighth on the Fortune Global 500 list.[5] Because Vitol does not publish its profits widely, much like most of its competitors in commodity trading, it is largely excluded from rankings. But the company does provide financial information to its lenders and some energy groups with which it trades.[6] The company ships more than 270 million tonnes of crude oil per year and controls 200 supertankers and other vessels to move it around the world. On average it handles more than 5 million barrels a day of oil and products - roughly equivalent to the daily consumption of Japan - the world's third largest oil consumer after the United States and China.[7][8]

That was such a great read I bookmarked it so I can re-read it in the future. That was a well written piece and I admire the honesty of Vitol's Taylor.
