"An Iranian oil shipper's $100 million tanker, on order from China, is nearly ready to sail the high seas. But it's turning out to be a mystery ship.

The National Iranian Tanker Co., a private company that records show ordered the tanker three years ago for its fleet, has acknowledged it ordered the ship but is now trying to distance itself from its ownership. The ship's Chinese state-owned builder, Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., dismisses any link with Iran or NITC.

The fog around the new tanker shows the high level of secrecy companies are imposing on their business with Iran these days—especially in the oil sector—in the face of heightened pressure to squeeze Iran economically...The sanctions have scared away many foreign oil shippers, leaving Tehran increasingly reliant on NITC to export the country's economic lifeblood.

Until now, the company had been spared by the restrictions. But political and legal pressure from governments and groups such as New York-based United Against Nuclear Iran is building for companies to cut their links to the tanker company."  (Wall Street Journal, "Mystery Ship Underlines Pain Tehran Faces Over Sanctions," 6/21/12)

"German engineering  firm MAN SE rejected accusations by a U.S. lobby group it was violating European Union sanctions against Iran, saying it was complying with all regulations. The group 'United Against Nuclear Iran'  claims MAN was involved in the construction  of oil tankers for Iran, fitting vessels with MAN engines and also selling vehicles to the country, according to a statement on the group's website, dated Jan. 9. MAN said on Wednesday that it had decided in 2010 not to take on new business  with Iran and was fulfilling contracts it signed before 2010, in accordance with international law."

“Multiple companies currently exploring new business ventures in Iran are also cashing in on highly lucrative contracts with the U.S. Defense Department, raising questions about whether their dealings with Iran could run afoul of U.S. law. At least 13 major international companies have said in recent weeks that they aim to reenter the Iranian marketplace over the next several months. The companies have received Pentagon contracts totaling well over $107 billion, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis that tracked DoD contracts awarded since fiscal year 2009. Many of the companies, which include carmaker Renault and oil giants such as BP, have already sent high-level trade delegations to Tehran to meet with Iranian officials about striking new business deals…These companies include Boeing and General Electric—which have DoD contracts worth $87 and $12 billion respectively—as well as the Italian oil company EniMerckSafranVitol, Bosch Rexroth, Sanofi Pastuer, and AVL.” (Washington Free Beacon, “Pentagon Contractors Exploring Business with Iran,” 2/25/14)
