Venezuela Has Hard Time Emptying Tanker at Risk of Sinking

Venezuela is finding it difficult to secure a vessel on which to empty an oil tanker at risk of sinking off its coast because of U.S. sanctions, a person familiar with the situation said.

The sanctions are scaring off foreign tankers from potentially taking the 1.1 million barrels of crude out of the Venezuela-flagged Nabarima floating storage unit, said the person, who asked not to be named because they weren’t authorized to comment publicly. Previous plans to unload the vessel over the past year have also been met with resistance from local workers because of the risks posed by the clashing currents of the Orinoco river and the Atlantic, according to another person.
