The Islamic Republic makes such maneuver in circumvention of sanctions, and now Washington is afraid for safety of world navigation. Whether there are bases to worry? And how Iran will sell oil from invisible tankers? Photo: depositphotos.com Iran uses a method of tankers ghosts again. Vessels switch-off transponders — identification devices via the satellite. As they are intended for the maximum visibility at the sea, the risk of accidents increases, have declared in the USA. Tankers transport oil, means accidents are fraught not only with death of people, but also environmental disaster. Sounds frightening. But in the same State Department have reminded that Iran during last sanctions switched-off transponders on the oil-carriers too. Though have forgotten to tell that major accidents because of it weren't. And even earlier there were no such technologies also. And nothing, didn't sink, the editor-in-chief of Sea Bulletin online media Mikhail Voytenko:mikhail Voitenko the editor-in-chief of the Morskoy Byulleten edition "Just notices in recent years people, of course, have got used to this rasslabukha, you approach the radar, and about each point her data right there appear. In principle technically there are no problems because 10-15 years ago, I don't say 20 years and more any more, no such automatic determinants existed, and nothing, normally all swam, and nobody sank from it. It is more decided, than real threat to navigation". The position of the USA surprises also with the fact that it is Americans have inflicted sanctions on Iran and have now renewed them, and now accuse Tehran of attempt to bypass them. But that last time that now — the republic doesn't refuse the main source of the income. It is unlikely tankers ghosts will be able imperceptibly to transport large volumes of oil. But and sanctions are softer now. To eight countries Washington I have allowed to buy the Iranian raw materials, though I have limited volumes. Perhaps, invisible tankers will also fill shortage. This oil will probably get to traders. They several times will resell it, and the goods will be not Iranian, and, for example, Chinese, the leading analyst Fonda of national energy security Igor Yushkov:igor Yushkov the leading analyst Fonda of national energy security "Assumes often oil will buy China because other buyers are in bigger contact with the USA from these traders. And as for China, it is less opportunity to find such information at the USA. Further it is quite possible that these traders will be connected to the system of a circumvention of the American sanctions created now by Europeans, Russia and China. There just sense in fouling the trail. Quite perhaps, further just Europeans will use the similar scheme too". By the way, Russian Novatek uses the similar scheme. His LNG as it was last winter, at first became Malaysian, then European, and as a result has gone to the USA. At Iran chains will be obviously more difficult, but the principle identical. Plus settlings with buyers without participation of dollar. If to return to safety issues, then it is worth reminding of the Iranian Sanchi tanker. Not Dove
