Iranian Fuel Tankers Approach the Caribbean: Report

TEHRAN – A flotilla of five tankers carrying Iranian fuel to Venezuela is entering the Caribbean, with the first vessel scheduled to arrive on Sunday at the waters of South America.
The Iran-flagged tanker Fortune, the first in the flotilla, was approaching the Caribbean Sea on Friday, according to Refinitiv Eikon tracking data.
Since passing the Suez Canal earlier in May, it has been navigating with its satellite signal. The other four vessels pursue the same route across the Atlantic Ocean, Reuters reported.
Iran supplies Venezuela with approximately 1.53 million barrels of gasoline and alkylate, according to governments, sources and calculations made by TankerTrackers.com based on the vessel’s draft levels.
The defense minister of Venezuela said his military would follow the Iranian tankers once they enter the exclusive economic zone of the country.
