A sanctioned Sovcomflot tanker has reportedly carried out a ship-to-ship transfer of Russian crude off Singapore.

Bloomberg said the Russian state shipowner’s 157,300-dwt suezmax SCF Primorye (built 2009) offloaded the Urals oil 70 miles (113 km) east of Singapore.

The vessel had travelled 12,000 km after loading the crude in the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk in April.
