Oil rises Chinese companies violate Iranian oil sanctions

Oil prices rose marginally as investors awaited developments in trade relations between the United States and China, especially after China threatened retaliatory measures once the US Congress passed a law on Hong Kong. The US Energy Information Administration expected the production of major US shale oil producers will rise by 58 thousand barrels per day to 8.97 million barrels in November.

Chinese companies violate Iranian oil sanctions

About one third of the tanker fleet of China Ocean Shipping Ltd. (COSCO) has stopped sending their location data in order to hide Iranian oil shipments, media reported Wednesday, citing White House officials. Several vessels of the logistics company, which Washington has already imposed sanctions on its two subsidiaries to ship Iranian crude oil in violation of US sanctions, reportedly closed their responders between September 30 and October 7.

Now, the US government is warning Chinese shipping companies not to trade Iranian oil and the threat of further sanctions, government officials told Reuters.
