“Today’s delivery of Eagle Pilar marks our first DP2 Shuttle Tanker to operate on long-term charter to Shell completing an agreement we reached two years ago, ” AET’s president and CEO Rajalingam Subramanian said.

“Following the delivery of Eagle Pilar, AET has another three new DP2 shuttle tankers to be delivered in 2021 and 2022 to Shell.

“With this latest delivery, AET has also further strengthened its position as a top owner and operator of 11 of these highly specialised shuttle tankers globally and especially in Latin America where we already operate six in the Brazilian Basin, ” Rajalingam added.
