Braemar Seascope is delighted to announce that it is strengthening its ship broking activities by opening a new division within the group’s Houston offices focusing on the large crude and products tanker trades.

The new operation will hit the ground running following the employment of four experienced tanker brokers. Nelson Hebert, Clint DeAtley, Chip Kelman and John Anderson have all come across town to the Braemar office. They will be joined by ex-MJLF broker and past Tanker Pacific chartering executive, Lynne Rutherford.

Denis Petropoulos, Executive Director of Braemar Shipping Services plc, says he is delighted at the setting up of the Houston ship broking desk which would strongly complement the tanker broking services that Braemar currently has in London and Singapore.

He says “Braemar already has offices in Houston serving the marine technical sectors of the energy industry. This new ship broking operation adds an exciting and dynamic dimension to our presence in what is the world’s premier oil and gas centre. Houston is geographically well placed for shipping and trading and together with London and Singapore, gives us 24 hour coverage to the markets.''
