Kurdish oil tanker near Texas goes dark

|By:, SA News Editor

Satellite tracking from the AIS ship tracking system used by the U.S. Coast Guard showed no known position for the United Kalavrvta, the tanker carrying $100M worth of Kurdish crude near Texas.

Many tankers loaded with the controversial oil have recently gone dark by switching off their transponders, including a Kamari tanker which disappeared days ago north of Egypt's Sinai and reappeared empty two days later.

Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government still have a long way to go to settle claims over who has the sole right to export the oil.
