List of Publicly Traded Crude Oil Tanker Companies Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

There are a few common traits involving the companies in this category:

  • Most of the publicly traded companies are headquartered outside of the United States. Many of these companies are incorporated in Bermuda or Monaco.
  • While most of these companies focus to a large degree on the shipment of crude oil, many of the companies also own vessels that ship a variety of products including bulk chemical liquids, diesel, fuel oil, jet oil, liquefied natural gas and refined petroleum.
  • It is a very common business model for these companies to lease out their vessels under long-term fixed rate charters to major oil companies, refiners, chemical companies and other users. Ideally, long-term fixed rate charters can provide a level of predictability regarding cash flow and potential profits.
