Trinidad & Tobago: Gov’t: No tilt observed on the Nabarima; offloading to begin

Energy Minister Franklin Khan said observations made by a team of experts who visited the FSO Nabarima showed no visible tilt or water ingress within the vessel.

Speaking at a media briefing today, Foreign Affairs and CARICOM Minister, Dr Amery Browne, said, however, that the team was not allowed to take photos or videos of the event.

They said the Venezuelan representatives who accompanied the Trinidadian experts who inspected the vessel took photos, which they will request.

Khan said the team — which consisted of senior petroleum engineer Craig Boodoo, Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard officer Lt Warner and Michael Daniel of the Maritime Services Division — was taken on a fly-around of the vessel but that they observed no visible tilt.
