05 Apr 2019

The Vietnam Coast Guard on Wednesday (3 April) said it detained tanker ND-95222 in the waters of Bach Long Vy, Hai Phong over suspicion of transporting an illegal oil cargo.

The vessel was transporting about 200,000 litres of diesel oil; invoices for the product were inconsistent and there was no certificate of origin for the product.

Additionally, the vessel did not have a permit to transport dangerous goods and there was no oil spill rescue plan.

As such, the vessel was escorted by the coast guard to Bach Long Vy port for investigations.
