Giken Ocean Tankers Limited was incorporated in 2003 to carry out the business of
shipping within Nigerian Coastal waters and the West African Coast generally.
In 2005, the company acquired 2 vessels of 6000MT capacity each – MT Gracious and MT
Agboiyi from Turkey. The vessels were financed by Equity Bank Ltd (taken over by
Intercontinental Bank Plc).
Between 2005 and 2007, both vessels were quite active in coastal liftings from Warri &
Port Harcourt Refineries. In January 2010, the company entered into a Technical
Management Agreement and a Commercial Management Agreement with a reputable
Ship Management company based in Mumbai, India – Transocean Shipping Ventures
(Pvt.) Ltd to revive and retrofit the vessels which had been moribund following the inactive
state of Warri & PHC Refineries.
The turn around was completed in May 2010 and the vessels commenced trading actively
along the West African coast lifting cargoes from Mother Vessels anchored in Cotonou,
Lome, Cote Divorie etc for supplies to Depots and Jetties in Lagos, Warri, Port Harcourt,
Calabar and offshore Oil platforms.
The vessels are manned by qualified and competent staff both Nigerians and expatriates.
The vessels are in class, with proper Hull and Machinery Insurances, Pollution & Indemnity
Insuraces in place. Also the vessels posses all required requlatory permits from NIMASA,
DPR, etc to operate.
