Turkish P&I cover issue – petroleum products Gard 2023-02-10 10:47

The agreement allowing crude oil to be shipped through Turkish-controlled waters will also apply to petroleum products.
We refer to our update published on 13 December regarding the agreement reached between the International Group of P&I Clubs and the Government of Turkey. The agreement entails that ships carrying crude oil and transiting or entering Turkish waters must provide letters of confirmation from the owner’s P&I club attesting that cover will remain in place while the ship is in Turkish waters.
We can now confirm that this same agreement applies to ships over 300 gt carrying petroleum products, listed in MARPOL Annex I – Appendix I.
Members are advised to contact the Club for further information and for the documentation needed for ships carrying such cargoes, as well as crude oil cargoes.
