ANALYSIS SHOWS OIL TANKER NUMBERS AT NORTH KOREA’S OIL TERMINAL NOT IMPACTED BY SANCTIONS

On 24th July, NK Pro reported that analysis of oil tanker numbers at North Korea’s Nampho oil terminal compiled from over 2½ years of satellite imagery shows continued and sustained activity at the site, despite strict UN sanctions restricting oil flows passed at the end of 2017.  The Nampho oil facility is one of North Korea’s primary oil offloading areas, and is recipient of a long-running and large-scale upgrade program.  A recent UN Panel of Exports report also said that the Nampho facility has also become a favoured offloading point for oil imported via illicit methods.  The article provides examples of satellite images, and analysis of what they might mean.
