Iran says UK may free seized tanker Tuesday night

“Britain is interested in releasing Iran’s oil tanker Grace 1 … following the exchange of some documents to secure its release,” said Jalal Eslami, the deputy head of Iran’s Ports and Maritime Organization on Tuesday. The Fars news agency also reported that Gibraltar is seeking to de-escalate the crisis, which sprang up last month when British Marines impounded the tanker on its way to deliver Iranian crude to Syria in violation of EU sanctions.

    I highly recommend a return of the Grace 1 through the Cape Horn and across the Pacific, which is sensibly longer than the return straight back around Africa.

    This is because the slush movement inside the reservoirs mixes the oil well, and when the tanker reaches Iran it is easier to pump it out.

      This oil comes from deposits closer to Shiraz, it is to expect its bouquet improves by a lot with aging.
      Better keep the tanker 100 or even better 200 years, connoisseurs will know to appreciate.

    Boris should tell them to keep the tanker, and then strafe the entire port, oil platforms, the sub pens, and fast boat pens and mother ships….As a Thank You, Welcome to the Party!

    The next thing you know they will be wanting to return the 40 tons of gold that they stole from Venezuela.
