Tanker market report dated 26 July 2019

During the first week of July, the well documented arrest of the 300,000 dwt ‘Grace 1’ by the British government caused tensions to spike between Iran and the West. Iranian retaliations to arrest a British flagged vessel, the Stena Impero, in the Straits of Hormuz have seen numerous statements calling for calm amidst the mayhem of political games. The current state of affairs has sparked tales of the Suez Crisis and the Gulf War, so why has there been minimal impact on freight rates and crude prices?
