Intertanko tallies tanker deliveries
The International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (Intertanko), Oslo, reports 64 crude oil tankers totaling 7.9 million dwt were delivered in 1993 to the end of July. That compares with 75 tankers scrapped during the same period, with a combined 7.6 million dwt. "Scrapping has come to a halt," Intertanko said. "China, the main breaker, has been reported to have problems financing more purchases."
