BSM Venezuela

BSM established operations in Venezuela in 2003. The opportunity to oversee the building of two product tankers in Argentina saw the setting up of Hanseatic Consultoria Naval in 2005, which has since diversified into the full management of Venezuelan-flagged vessels.

A major client for BSM Venezuela is the national oil company, PDVSA, that has a joint venture with Petrochina run through CV Shipping of Singapore for the management of four VLCCs, two of which are managed by BSM Cyprus. BSM Venezuela mainly manages crude/product tankers and multi-purpose cargo vessels.

BSM Venezuela features a Crew Service Centre currently supplying officers to over 20 vessels, most of which are owned by Bernhard Schulte and operating within crude/LPG tanker and geophysical survey segments.

The main services BSM Venezuela offers within the market are:

  • Technical Management for Venezuelan and foreign flagged vessels
  • Crew Management for Venezuelan and foreign flagged vessels
  • Consultancy to Venezuelan ship owners/ operators
