Tanker vetting process by oil majors, in terms of safety and quality
According to various authors and organizations, it is widely accepted that; “Shipping is perhaps the most international of all world’s great industries and one of the most dangerous”. Focusing on this statement, maritime industry is quite essential because it covers approximately 90% of the international trade. On the course of the years, many incidents occurred into the sea and obviously caused implications on both the environment and humanity. This dissertation, initially, examines the maritime safety as well as the quality that is noticed at the sector and especially the charterers-oil companies look for. To accomplish their task, they carry out inspections and investigations on tankers’ fleet. Both international and regional organizations play a crucial role in order to constantly upgrade the relevant agreements and regulations. At the last part of this thesis, the author illustrates the case study of Exxon Mobil colossus.
