The NITC tanker Baikal arrived at Syros on Tuesday with 146,000 tons of crude oil. The ship attempted to refuel at a terminal, but the request was denied that evening, after which the ship sailed on toward Myconos. The coast guard was alerted at Syros, and a hunt for the ship is currently underway in Greek waters, according to Tradewinds.
The Greek authorities suspect that the ship Baikal was making an oil delivery to a Greek customer, or a customer at the Balkans, thus acting in direct violation of the EU sanctions against Iran. No documentation has been found that might indicate the potential customer.
