We recently received the Gibson Tanker Book 2005, which provides a handy overview of ships and owners including, for example, details of various tanker pools.

According to the statistics in the book, independent owners have increased their share of the tanker fleet in dwt terms from 77% in 2000 to 79% in 2005. 

The book also lists 13 pools, including Aframax International (9 owners with 36 tankers), Alliance (7 owners with 50 suezmaxes), Dorado (14 owners with 24 tankers 37,000 to 49,000 dwt), Handytankers KS (14 owners with 77 tankers 27,000 to 40,000 dwt), Odfjell Seachem (7 owners with 67 tankers 17,000 to 40,000 dwt), Star (16 owners with 50 tankers 53,000 to 73,000 dwt), Tankers International (15 owners with 40 tankers 260,000 to 445,000 dwt), and 3 different Torm Pools totalling some 75 tankers.

Some owners participate in several pools.
