From a Tradewinds story:
These Capes are ECO-type i.e. fuel efficient variety.

At the bottom of the article some idea on the smaller vessels order mid-year 2012. Looks
like 4 Aframax, 4 VLGC, and, at least 6 MRs. I think there's 6 more MRs, plus all the options.

Also, a note on the cancellation of a second VLCC newbuild. Hmm! If the refund is processed in
a timely manner, that's where initial capital on the new orders originates? Don't know,
just sayin'

BTW, on a related note, during the last week in 2012, BP placed an order for 10 Aframax and
3 Suezmax. Somewhat odd, is BP venturing back into the direct ownership of tankers? Perhaps
these get turned into Sale-and-leaseback deals down the road?
