Oil Leakages at Maracaibo Lake causing hull stains

All concerning parties should be aware that the presence of oil leakages in Maracaibo Lake is a frequent issue and most vessels transiting this area are subject to oil stains on the hulls with the subsequent loss of time due the necessary cleaning arrangement.
