PETROBRAS SAYS IT WILL NOT HIRE OIL TANKERS THAT HAVE VISITED VENEZUELA

On 15 June, Insurance Marine News reported that Brazilian oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras), which is state-controlled, has told shippers that it would not be hiring any tankers that have visited Venezuela in the past 12 months.  It also reports that Wilmer Ruperti, a Venezuelan shipping magnate, faces a US sanctions investigation for possibly violating US sanctions, who has had links to Venezuela’s ruling Socialists since the 1999-2013 rule of Hugo Chavez.
