The UK is in a tough spot, they don't want to appear to be weak, but from day 1 they said that if the cargo is not going to Syria, they would release it. So now Iran has given assurances it is not going there, so the legal reason for holding it is gone. The Iranians can claim they beat the UK up, but really the Brits would release it without the Iranians grabbing a tanker.

The tanker has diverted to Turkey.

So, what are the odds that the tanker trucks are already lining up to take the oil across the border to help Syria battle the Kurds?   :not-again:

ADRIAN DARYA at her current course and speed can be at the terminal in Baniyas Syria in 12 hours, her end destination keeps changing, not unusual for commodity ships to have their cargo sold several times in a voyage, but with this ship.....

Update steaming at 7.4kts on a course of 112degrees, puts her into Syrian waters in 4.5 hrs, there is no Turkish port in the direction she is currently travelling.

Hmm the Iranian vessel is slowing and turned to 140 degrees, steaming North is the Maersk Magellan, a Turkish flagged tanker, either the Iranian ship is hoping to wander into Syrian waters or do a ship to ship transfer? they meet in 2-3hrs so we will see.

The latest tracking info (see attachment one) from the Marine Traffic website shows the ADRIAN DARYA north of Cyprus then backtracking before heading towards Lebanon. However, latest info (today - Attachment 2) shows her turning to port and heading towards Syria.

Latest update was almost nine hours ago. Possible they turned off AIS tracking data and may already in a Syrian port.

Yes she has likely started discharging, since they had problems with the mooring points, discharging might take longer than hoped and they might be able to get satellite evidence of it. At least now the Europeans know what is the worth of the Iranian promise. That ship will be sold immediately after and name changed numerous times.
