Three Sovcomflot vessels sanctioned by the US for alleged price cap violations shifted their operations from June to receive oil from Russia’s Far East in a series of ship-to-ship transfers, according to tracking data.

The 115,700-dwt Kazan and 114,700-dwt Ligovsky Prospect (both built 2003) received three cargoes of oil in separate lightering operations off the coast of South Korea before delivery to Indian ports, according to Kpler cargo data.
