Greece's Tsakos Group is said to be in talks with Sungdong Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering to build a pair of suezmax shuttle tankers.
Industry insiders say the newbuildings would be for delivery by the end of 2014 for charter to Brazil's Petrobras.
Meanwhile, Tsakos has two 4,700TEU containerships on order at the Korean shipyard and is said to be discussing to change the boxship order to shuttle tankers.
Tsakos Energy Navigation had earlier penned 157,000-dwt shuttle tankers with Sungdong in March 2011.
