Tankers to benefit from more energy exports, Jefferies says

While refiner stocks are tumbling on fear that margins will be hurt as the U.S. begins to allow U.S. condensate exports, the sensational headline speculating on the end of the oil export ban “is a long way from giving two companies export permissions to full U.S. crude exports.”

However, Jefferies analysts say the news is a near-term positive for tanker companies that ship oil, such as Frontline (FRO -4.6%) and Nordic American Tanker (NAT +1.3%).

Even while condensate export volumes are likely to be limited, any increase in export volumes should have a net positive impact on the crude oil tanker market, the firm says, with any heavy condensate volumes exported out of the U.S. to be carried out on either Aframax crude oil tankers and/or Panamax crude oil tankers.

    (FRO) has been an utter disaster.


    (SFL) is a great holding, however.
