The Greek-owned tanker St. Nikolas, sailing under a Marshall Islands flag, that had been seized by a group of five gunmen off the coast of Oman on Thursday has anchored at the port of Bandar Abbas in Iran, sources said on Friday.

The Greek foreign ministry is in charge of ensuring the safety and repatriation of a Greek national that is part of the tanker’s crew.

According to ship owner Empire Navigation’s latest announcement, the safety of the 19-member crew (18 Filipinos and one Greek) of the St. Nikolas remains the top priority.
It also said that it has immediately informed the competent authorities and is in constant contact with them, as well as with the crew members’ families.

It is noted that the tanker left a few days ago from Basra (Iraq) loaded with rougly 145,000 of crude oil bound for Aliaga (Turkiye) via the Suez Canal. The vessel’s charterer was Tupras.
