The structure of the tanker charter market (in terms of charterers and charter types) is largely determined by the pattern of control of oil supplies and by the reliability of those supplies. The study analyses recent trends in the control of oil supplies and in tanker chartering to show how the structure of the charter market is changing to reflect the new ownership of oil: the Study will measure the decline in the role of the traditional dominant tanker operators and the rise of new companies in the tanker market. The study assesses how the changing structure of the charter market is influencing charterers' preferences both in terms of ship size and the type of contract entered into (both the average length of contract, and common charter terms have shown a marked pattern of change during the last eight years).
