The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Transport Authority has banned all ships of the Indian Varun Resources Limited from calling the country’s ports, due to repeated crew abandonment offences.

According to sources, the ban comes following a recent crew abandonment case involving the company’s LPG tanker ‘Maharshi Vamandeva’, off Fujairah port.

Namely, the ship’s crew has been reportedly left without basic provisions, fuel, and medical care, and it has not been paid wages as well.

Several of the company’s ships have also been arrested in various countries due to unpaid bills. In June, ‘Ocean Mare’ crude oil tanker was arrested in Singapore and the ‘Maharshi Bhavatreya’ was arrested after order by the Bombay High Court earlier this year on request of unpaid workers onboard.

Drewry: Crude tanker freight rates to drop in 2018

Although tonnage supply growth in the crude tanker market is expected to be low next year after surging in 2017, this will not be enough to push tonnage utilisation rates higher as demand growth is expected to be sluggish, Drewry notes. A slowdown in global oil demand growth and a likely decline in China’s stocking activity will keep growth in the crude oil trade moderate next year.
