US president Joe Biden has been urged to let a UK tanker dock in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Fiona ravaged the island.

Hayfin Capital’s 50,000-dwt MR ship GH Parks (built 2009) vessel is idling off the coast with a 300,000-barrel diesel cargo, but is not allowed in due to Jones Act restrictions on overseas-flagged ships.

Puerto Rico wants Biden to waive the Act in this case.
