Shell to offload crude oil cargo from arrested “Brightoil Lion” tanker

09 Jan 2019

Shell Eastern Petroleum Pte Ltd has successfully filed an application at the Singapore Supreme Court on Monday (7 January) to offload a cargo of crude oil from the Hong Kong-registered Brightoil Lion tanker, its arresting solicitor told Manifold Times on the sidelines of the hearing.

The 107,525 dwt crude oil tanker, ultimately owned by Hong Kong-listed Brightoil Petroleum (Holdings) Limited (Brightoil), was arrested by Swiss multinational investment bank Credit Suisse through Joseph Tan Jude Benny LLP at Singapore Eastern Bunkering Anchorage A on 27 December, 2018.

Brightoil on 22 November noted Brightoil Shipping Singapore Pte. Ltd. (BOSS) entering into charter agreements with Shell International Eastern Trading Company after signalling an intention to return to the shipping sector by terminating the sale of 15 vessels due to ‘a strong up-going market’.

The Singapore-based bunker tanker fleet of Brightoil subsidiary Brightoil Petroleum (S'pore) Pte Ltd was placed under sheriff’s arrest  on 21 November.

Brightoil Petroleum (S'pore) is submitting an application for approval of a six-month moratorium order at the Singapore High Court on 11 January 2019.
