Illegal Transport of Oil in Tankers in Venezuela
The UK P&I Club have received the following update on the illegal transportation of oil in tankers in Venezuela from lawyers, Matheus & Ulloa.
Last week (8-2-2018) the General Prosecutor announced the arrest of two foreign flagged tankers, in Puerto La Cruz, on illegal oil trafficking charges. He reported that one of them was going to load 300,000 barrels of oil with false documents. The other tanker, as reported, was going to load 30,000 barrels of diesel, also with false documents. The Prosecutor said that by frustrating these shipments, the country saved US$ 48 million.
