Supposedly a bunch of tankers have been on fire since 4am but satellite imagery from this morning shows nothing. The only outlets running this story are Sputnik and a few from Iran. Still waiting on additional media.

They really need to work on their timing. Why waste this ammo on a Sunday? Market's closed.

If something that major would have happened, then it would have been a lot more worse than the (actual) recent pipeline explosion in Iran.

Todo bien according to Fujairah. No unusual maritime or imagery data either. Enjoy your Sunday, folks.

Assad’s propaganda machine now spewing out vessel IMO numbers; 2 of which are complete fabrication as they have an extra digit. One of the vessels is in Jeddah (Red Sea). Facts don’t matter, but hey, his background pic remains the envy of the nation.

Here’s NASA’s PM shot. The only thing I see burning is my battery time on this BS.

Further evidence of nothing burning today. Imagery by and . Maritime data by shows nothing irregular about a list of 4 tankers someone published on Twitter (sent to me by a journalist). There are currently 172 vessels in Fujairah's anchorage.

The Saudis don’t specify who or which country was behind the ‘sabotage’, but they got Jordan, Egypt and Bahrain to agree with them that it was. That was quick. As for the tanker going to the US from Ras Tanura...which one would that be? The empty VLCC?

The funny thing is that Emirati media is saying it was 4 cargo ships. No mention of oil tankers. This just came out now.

But the Saudis say it was two of their tankers, one heading for the US. Great coordination in media relations, folks.

So far, I haven’t seen either the UAE or Saudi point their finger at Iran for this ‘sabotage’, but I doubt that Iran would even dream of doing anything there right now given that they STILL have a fully laden VLCC anchored in Jeddah due to engine failure. They NEED Fujairah.

Saudis post a new article. Zero mention of Sauid tankers. You would think it would at least get a mention.

Did they not already mention the tankers? Commercially, not good for tanker companies to be involved incidents. Could be a reason not to mention the ships too much.

I don't understand which Saudi tanker supposedly was heading to Amreeka. In Fujairah, there are only 3 Saudi tankers. Biggest one (AMJAD) is empty and has returned from China. Second largest (AL-MARZOQAH) is laden, coming from Yanbu (Saudi Red Sea). AL-SAFA is tiny chem tanker.

That Reuters article said one was due to load at Ras Tanura before going to the US - so maybe Amjad?
