Greek Tanker Owners Launch Hellenic INTERTANKO Tanker Forum

The Greek members of the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (INTERTANKO) have established the Hellenic INTERTANKO Tanker Forum to facilitate and enhance the dialogue and cooperation between the Association and its members within the Greek tanker community, both in Greece and abroad.

More specifically, the Hellenic INTERTANKO Tanker Forum has been formed to provide an open forum for the Greek members of the Association and to enhance their participation. The Forum will identify specific issues of interest/concern that can be addressed properly within an international framework.

The Greek tanker owners proposed the formation of the Forum following a visit to Athens by INTERTANKO Chairman, Richard du Moulin in October 1996. Erric Kertsikoff of Eletson Corporation played a key role in formalising the support of the Greek owners and ensuring the initiative came to fruition. In recent months the Greek fleet has been the fastest growing sector of INTERTANKO`s Membership. Since the beginning of 1996 12 new Greek members with 66 tankers totalling 4.1 million dwt have joined the Association.

The official establishment of the Hellenic INTERTANKO Tanker Forum comes at the end of the INTERTANKO Athens Tanker Event, the most successful meeting to date in INTERTANKO`s series of international tanker conferences and exhibitions.
