Braemar’s Denis Petropoulos on turning a profit in 2018
Denis Petropoulos, Braemar

Anyone looking to prosper in the year ahead will need to know how to navigate the five commercial Cs challenging our industry: consolidation, competition, contracts, completions and capital flows.

Happily, this year’s Tanker Shipping & Trade Conference, Exhibition & Awards brings together three of the industry’s most successful professionals to share their well-proven views on where the smart money will be over the next 12 months.

Braemar’s Denis Petropoulos is a colossus of our industry. His role and experience gives him a global perspective, but especially valuable is his insight into the Asian and especially Chinese tanker scene having spent the last few years stationed in Singapore. He knows very well who is ordering, who is selling and where seasoned tanker operators are placing their bets.

Norton Rose Fulbright global head of transport, Harry Theochari, is widely seen as the maritime industry’s pre-eminent shipping finance lawyer. His knowledge of the markets and his status as one of the most connected and consulted professionals in the business means he knows where the capital will flow in and out of the tanker industry in 2018.

Tanker Shipping & Trade readers will know Charles Lawrie well from his expert analysis frequently carried on the pages of He returns to the podium by popular demand having presented previously at our event.

Don’t miss out. Your competitors and your clients are bound to be in attendance.
