Splash Investigation Pinpoints The True Scale Of The Shadow Tanker Fleet

Splash 247

…The methodology of the research started with the Iranian-linked tanker list compiled by the non-profit United Against Nuclear Iran. On top of this, Splash analysed which ships changed class from the main, Western societies to Indian and Chinese class societies over the past 12 months. Additionally, our analysis looked at special surveys due for more than six years, giving an indication on how prolific an owner is. Most class societies withdraw ships if they do not comply with the five-year special survey rules. Ownership was then checked via the free database Equasis.
