France to strictly control certain older single-hulled tankers

INTERTANKO has been informed that the French authorities have advised that single-hulled oil tankers, more than 15 years old, carrying heavy fuel, tar, asphaltic bitumen or heavy crude oil are subject to 24-hour notification to the relevant French MRCC before entering the Exclusive Economic Zone.

INTERTANKO has been informed that the French authorities have advised that single-hulled oil tankers, more than 15 years old, carrying heavy fuel, tar, asphaltic bitumen or heavy crude oil entering the Exclusive Economic Zone are subject to 24-hour notification to the relevant French MRCC (Corsen, Jobourg or Gris Nez) and will be strictly controlled. We hope to revert with more details next week.
