Outline of Services
MOL owns large-size (over 200,000 DWT) crude oil tankers, called very large crude oil carriers (VLCCs) and mid-size tankers, known as Aframax-class vessels, which help ensure a stable supply of crude oil around the world. We also offer a full lineup of vessels that meet the characteristics of all types of liquid cargoes-product tankers for refined petroleum products including gas oil, naphtha, and gasoline, chemical tankers for liquefied chemical products, methanol carriers, and LPG carriers.
MOL offers high-quality transport services based on extensive expertise on safe operation and ship management, as well as an enormous knowledge base of marine technical skills, which we have accumulated as one of the world's largest and best regarded tanker operators.
