Ongoing Theft of Yemeni Oil: Giant Oil Tanker to Loot 2.4m Barrels of Oil Through Dhaba Port in Occupied Hadramout
Quting from almasirah, A giant oil tanker will arrive in the next few days at Al-Dhaba port in Ash-Shihr, Hadramout governorate, in the south of the country, in order to steal more Yemeni oil from the areas under the control of the invasion and occupation forces, private sources told Almasirah on Monday.
According to the sources, the tanker is expected to carry 2.4 million barrels of looted Yemeni crude oil.
The sources indicated that the cost of the looted oil that the tanker will carry is estimated at more than $165 million.
The oil looted from Bir Ali and Dhaba ports during April and August reached more than $429 million.
On August 15, a source at the Ministry of Oil revealed that the giant oil tanker SARASOTAA has arrived at Bir Ali Port in the Radhum district of Shabwa governorate, coming from South Korea, to steal more than 100,000 tons of Yemeni crude oil.
The source explained that the oil tanker docked with the help of the tugboat (Water Blue), coming from the Emirati port of Fujairah, which has been on the port’s shore since the beginning of the year.
He stressed that the supertanker is preparing to loot approximately 106,000 tons of crude oil and is expected to carry 950,000 barrels of crude oil.
The source indicated that the oil expected to be looted on this tanker is equivalent to $69 million.
He noted that the ports of the occupation areas, such as the port of Al-Dhaba and the port of Bir Ali, are an outlet for the looting of Yemeni crude oil, stressing that only the powerful persons from the tools of the invasion and occupation know the fate of crude oil sales.
Bir Ali Oil Port received on April 12 the giant oil tanker SAGA coming from the Emirati port of Fujairah on the mission of transporting more than 115 thousand tons (approximately one million barrels) of crude oil to be sold for the benefit of the forces of aggression, in continuous looting of Yemen’s wealth.
The organized looting of Yemeni oil comes while Yemenis are suffering from multiple crises as a result of the aggression and the siege, one of which is the interruption of salaries. This looted wealth is enough to cover the salaries of all state employees and more, as confirmed by the recent statistics of the Ministry of Oil.
