Chevron chartered oil tanker “Kerala” collides with sanctioned vessel “Bueno”

22 Mar 2023

Liberia-flagged oil tanker Kerala, chartered by Chevron Corp, was reportedly involved in a minor collision with sanctioned tanker, Bueno, in Venezuela on 19 March, according to a Reuters report on Tuesday (21 March).

The report said Bueno has not navigated international waters since the U.S. Treasury Department last year imposed sanctions on it and four other vessels for alleged involvement in moving Iranian origin shipments, which led to the loss of its Djibouti flag.

Kerala was scheduled to load about 240,000 barrels of Venezuelan heavy oil at the Bajo Grande terminal at Lake Maracaibo this week. The ship was near the Amuay ship-to-ship transfer area on Sunday when it collided with Bueno.

Both vessels were not significantly damaged by the incident and no injuries or spills were reported.
