Qatari-flagged-or-bounded vessels blocked by Middle East ports



As Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, it has been widely reported that Qatari vessels are not allowed to enter ports in the aforementioned Gulf Arab states and their respective anchorage areas. This includes the major ports such as Fujairah. Some ports including Fujairah also block non-Qatari vessels that bound for or depart a Qatari port from calling.


Gulf Oil Marine’s supply of marine lubricants to those Qatari-flagged-or-bounded vessels will be subject to inquiry.
