The tanker company Norstar is setting up a new Commercial Management joint venture based in the US.
Norstar Chartering, in Westport, Connecticut, is a collaboration between brothers Chris and Tom Bonehill, principals of the Norstar Group and two senior shipping industry executives, Lars Ebbesen and Olav Ekeberg, who were formerly partners of Sokana Chartering and Navig8 Chemicals.
Tom Bonehill said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Lars and Olav to form this new company. They are known in the tanker industry as being outstanding ship traders with a broad network and excellent support from their cargo customers. This new venture will complement our existing structure of commercial and technical management services”.
Norstar is a fully integrated shipping company with offices in Singapore, Myanmar and Connecticut, US. The company presently manages a fleet of 19 chemical and product carriers.
