Sea Tankers Shipping S.A. was established in Mérignac in 2007 by the Belgian group Sea-Invest, as the merger of Petromarine and Fouquet-Sacop.
In September 2019, Sea Tankers was taken over jointly by Valloeby shipholding, a company created in Malta in 2015, which acquired Sea Tankers' fleet (12 vessels), and Agility Maritime, a London-based broker, which acquired ST Management, the manager of Sea Tankers' fleet.

The Société Auxiliaire des Consommateurs de Produits Pétroliers (Sacop) was founded 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 and was renamed to Fouquet Sacop; 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.
