KGT oil is proud of its worldwide relationships which enables it to move oil almost anywhere around the globe. We regularly charter vessels of all sizes to transport our cargoes, such as Suezmaxes, Aframaxes and Panamaxes. Cargoes are only insured with first class insurance companies granting us and our receivers the security they are looking for.
Chartering is done spot as well as on a contract for affreightment basis. Time charters are also regularly used to hire vessels.
Our dedicated staff ensures that all is done with utmost professionality and dedication. Our logistics team operates seamlessly with our trading desks to manage freight exposures and to add safety and efficiency to our physical transactions.
Oil storage, for both crude and products, is regularly used as a trading tool by our company. Oil storage facilities are made available to the trading desks through long term agreements with first class storage companies.
