Euronav is an independent tanker company engaged in the ocean transportation and storage of crude oil. The group has become the world’s largest, independent quoted crude tanker platform by continuously adapting its strategy to the rapidly changing nature of the shipping markets. The Company is headquartered in Antwerp, Belgium, and has offices throughout Europe and Asia. Euronav is listed on Euronext Brussels and on the NYSE under the symbol EURN.
Euronav operates its fleet both on the spot and the period market. Most of Euronav's VLCCs and 1 V-Plus are operated in the Tankers International Pool. Euronav’s Suezmax ﬂeet is partly fixed on long-term charter. The Euronav Suezmax fleet that is operated on the spot market is partially traded through Suezmax Chartering, a commercial joint venture with Diamond S Management LLC and Frontline Ltd.
Euronav can also supply and operate Floating, Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessels through conversion or newbuilding. Euronav is able to bring added value to its offshore projects through building supervision or construction, engineering and in-house management.
Its fleet management is mainly conducted by three wholly owned subsidiaries Euronav Ship Management SAS and Euronav SAS, both French companies with head quarters in Nantes, France and with a major branch office in Antwerp, Belgium and Euronav Ship Management (Hellas) Ltd. with branch office in Athens, Greece.
The skills of its directly employed seagoing officers and crew and its shore-based staff, including captains and engineers, give Euronav a competitive edge in high-quality design, maintenance and operation. Euronav vessels fly Belgian, Greek, French, Marshall Islands and Panamese flag.
