Lloyd's List

… Investigations by United Against Nuclear Iran, a pressure group, found that the Panama-flagged 7,425 dwt liquefied petroleum gas carrier spoofed its Automatic Identification System signals to hide its position while loading butadiene from Iran between July 4-8 last year.  The vessel currently sits at anchor near China’s Fuzhou Port, according to Lloyd’s List Intelligence data. Its registered owner Golden Warrior Shipping is a Hong Kong-based company that also has an address in China’s Shandong province. Singapore-based Pioneer Shipmanagement has connections to LPG tankers Gas Orchid (IMO: 8912558) and Sea Opera (IMO: 9000883), both of which are suspected of having carried sanctioned Iranian oil, according to UANI.
