Qatar fallout for oil and LNG shipping fogged by conflicting port authority signals | The National

Qatar fallout for oil and LNG shipping fogged by conflicting port authority signals | The National:

"The effects on energy trade flows of the diplomatic squeeze on Qatar by some of its Arabian Gulf neighbours have been hard to gauge so far.

The Saudi-led move to sanction Qatar for alleged support of terrorism has included a ban on all Qatar vessels from the sea territory of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, as well as from the air and land. It has certainly disrupted shipping in general.

The latest circular from the port of Fujairah yesterday was different to one issued on June 5, when the sanctions were first imposed, and appeared to redraw restrictions imposed on vessels that might be stopping to take on bunker fuel at the port before continuing their journey on trade routes to Asia or the West."
