Report: SOMO Blacklists Three Crude Oil Tankers

Iraqi national company State Organization for Marketing of Oil (SOMO) has blacklisted three tankers which had been shipping crude oil from Kurdistan, according to Reuters.

Namely, the company earlier noted that it would not allow the 1995-built oil tanker Maran Centaurus, the 2001-built Four Smile and the 2010-built SN Olivia to enter ports in Iraq or export the country’s crude oil.

The move comes amid preparations for new discussions on oil revenue sharing in the region between Baghdad and Kurdistan, after Iraq resumed crude oil shipping operations from its Kirkuk fields to Kurdistan.

World Maritime News contacted SOMO for details on the matter, however, the company is yet to reply.
