The supervisor of Xihe Holdings, the 60% holding company for Singapore-based tanker ship owner Xihe Group of Companies, has reportedly placed seven of its oil tankers for sale in an effort to generate liquidity to repay creditors, reports Reuters.
In August, the company was placed under interim judicial management (IJM) as creditors rallied behind OCBC’s application for Xihe’s restructuring to be independent of the Lim family
The total value of the vessels is reportedly at just over $196 million; Clarksons Platou and Arrow Shipbroking Group have been selected by the supervisor to act jointly as brokers to oversee the sales of the vessels.
The seven vessels are part of Xihe’s fleet of 136 vessels which are currently idle on the South China Sea, among which six tankers from the Lim family fleet are purportedly carrying cargo undergoing legal disputes from several parties.
The vessels for sale include:
|Company||Vessel Name||Vessel Type||Year Built|
|Nan Ya Maritime Pte Ltd||Pu Tuo San||VLCC||2011|
|Hua Kang Shipping Pte Ltd||Tai San||VLCC||2009|
|Hua Xin Shipping Pte Ltd||Tai Hung San||VLCC||2010|
|Dong Fang Shipping & Trading Pte Ltd||Ocean Pegasus||LR2||2009|
|Xin Ya Shipping & Trading Pte Ltd||Oceann Trader||LR2||2008|
|XIn Sheng Shipping Pte Ltd||Ocean Victory||MR1||2002|
|Nan Hai Maritime Pte Ltd||Bei Jiang||MR2||2009|
