IRAN’S TANKER FLEET GOES OFF GRID POST-SANCTIONS

Hellenic Shipping News on 17th November reported that almost half of Iran’s state-owned oil tankers have stopped broadcasting their geographical positions over the past month, leaving an uncertain picture of the country’s seaborne crude exports after the reintroduction of US sanctions.  At least 25 tankers owned by Iran’s National Iranian Tanker Company have not posted any update of their position by satellite using the Automatic Identification System (AIS) since November 10th.
