Shipping and Transportation

Chappin Energy is proud of its worldwide relationships which enables it to move oil to major global markets and suppliers. 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.

Storage

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.

Chappin Energy currently holds significant storage capacity in USA which is strategically placed to take advantage of flows from the Pacific regions.

Risk Management

Chappin Energy operates in all risk management tools, including the futures market, over the counter (OTC) swaps and a range of other derivatives. We bring high standards of risk management and operational excellence to our customers while maintaining sophisticated risk management systems, processes and controls.

Financial, operational and market risks are an integral element of commodities trading and physical supply. They cannot be wholly avoided, but can be planned for and managed. We take a comprehensive approach to hedging and marketing to help our clients achieve their goals and objectives.
