For one of the latter, the daily payment is $ 32,750 for a total of € 35.9 million in revenue expected from an oil major in the three-year period starting in November; the other earned 35,000 dollars in freight from a primary refinery starting from December for a total of 38.3 million dollars in 36 months.
A refinery is also the charterer of the Medium Range tanker which from November will operate under a time charter worth $ 25,000 per day for a total of $ 27.4 million over three years.
