History of Fouquet SACOP

The Société Auxiliaire des Consommateurs de Produits Pétroliers (SACOP) was founded 193 by the Ambrogi family. SACOP was a very modest company, aimed at resupplying ships with oil from the Berre refineries, located west of Marseilles. Before the Second World War, the company operated three small coastal tankers, MS Bruni, MS Martigues and MS Ginouse. The three tankers were lost during the war.

In 1946, the company operated small tankers from the American Navy surplus. In 1950, the company found a new associate, was renamed Fouquet SOCAP; three new tankers were purchased in the Netherlands to transport refined mineral oils. In 1965, Fouquet diversified its activity with transport of olive oil, chemicals and other products. A subsidiary, Société Maritime et Commerciale de Monaco (SOMARCO), was set up in Monaco for the commerce with the USA.
The company was sold in 1998 to the group Financière Neptune, also owner of Gaz Atlantique. Today, Fouquet-SACOP operates seven tankers.
