This week's top stories on ShippingWatch

The collapse in OW Bunker was the week's single biggest event and it was followed closely by ShippingWatch. In other news, Nordic Offshore Marine went bankrupt and Statoil announced its big expectations for the Sverdrup field.

The collapse of OW Bunker

ShippingWatch reported the story of possible fraud in OW Bunker Wednesday, and late at night going into Thursday the company sent out two stock market wires: one announcing systematic fraud of a total of USD 125 million and one detailing the loss of the company's entire equity capital.

That marked the beginning of a major drama and the big question cropping up during Friday was whether or not the Singapore executives were the only ones with knowledge of the matter.
