Lloyds Loading List on 22nd July reported that oil traders and charterers are said to be reassessing the short and medium-term use of tonnage connected with the Isle of Man, UK, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar or BVI group of British registries as the diplomatic crisis with Iran escalates. It says that currently 8 trading vessels remain stranded in the Persian Gulf. It also says that, according to Lloyds List Intelligence, there are 65 LNG carriers and LPG carriers with UK registries, as well as a further 351 tankers above 10,000 dwt. The stranded ships include the Isle of Man-flagged Kathrine Kosan.
