The Turkish Maritime Authority announced today, Sunday, that four tankers carrying about 475,000 tons of oil have submitted the required insurance letters in accordance with the rules and will cross the Istanbul Strait on December 12.

The Turkish measure, which came into force at the beginning of this month, caused delays in the passage of tankers. The procedure requires tankers to provide evidence of an insurance contract covering the period of their transit through the Bosphorus or when they stop in Turkish ports.

The authorities said in a statement that they had withdrawn five oil tankers from the country’s territorial waters through the Dardanelles because they could not provide insurance confirmation letters.
