Gatik ‘dark fleet’ tanker detained for technical defects not sanctions concerns

The detention of tanker Galatia in Antwerp last week was unrelated to the EU’s latest sanctions provisions which allow ships to be banned from EU ports following suspicious ship-to-ship transfers

Antwerp confirms that port state control detained the Panama-flagged Galatia, one of the 50-plus anonymously owned tankers formerly operated by Gatik Ship Management from a shopping mall in Mumbai, on the basis of unspecified technical deficiencies. However, Belgian officials are now in talks with the European Commission on whether ship-to-ship transfers dating back several months may require further action
