INTERTANKO pays courtesy visit to Marinha do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro

INTERTANKO Directors Joe Angelo and Peter Swift paid a courtesy call on Admiral Marcos Martins Torres, Director, Diretoria de Portas e Costas, Marinha do Brasil this week.  

During their visit they discussed Brazilian flag and port state requirements, methods of increasing the availability of data from the Vina del Mar agreement, regional environmental and navigational concerns, especially in the proximity of the large number of offshore production platforms, spill preparedness. They also covered ongoing developments at the IMO.  

Having recently achieved self-sufficiency in oil exploration, Brazil will become a significant net oil exporter in the coming years, with a further growth in demand for tanker tonnage.
