The Maritime Executive

…U.S. officials in April had sought authorization from the Greek courts to seize the cargo aboard the tanker after it anchored off the Greek island of Evia. At the time she was identifying as a Russian-owned tanker named Pegas, while the Iranian watchdog group UANI highlighted the shadowy nature of the vessel reporting that it was carrying 700,000 barrels of Iranian crude oil loaded in August 2021. The vessel was believed to have been seeking a port or planning a ship-to-ship transfer in the Mediterranean when it encountered a mechanical problem in April.
