In mid-September 2019, Lebanon-based Meamed International SAL Offshore became the registered owner and commercial manager of the Romina, two weeks after the tanker was renamed and reflagged under Iran, according to the International Maritime Organization and Equasis maritime data;
The Romina is on the radar of the US government for its illicit activities. On March 25 2019, the US Treasury included the vessel on a list of tankers that have carried out ship-to-ship transfers of Iranian petroleum destined for Syria. It stopped short of sanctioning the vessel, which was then named Marshal Z.
Since being acquired by Meamed International SAL Offshore, the Romina has moved through the Strait of Malacca toward Oman. Despite its new Iranian flag, the Romina has continued to broadcast its previous Maritime Mobile Service Identity number, which identifies the crude oil tanker as being Panama-flagged under its old name.
Panama’s Maritime Authority did not respond to The National regarding the discrepancy.
In March 2019, Meamed International SAL Offshore was acquired by three new owners, Mohammed al Madani, Fayez al Kakoun and Rabih Alam, according to Lebanese corporate documents obtained by The National. The firm’s previous shareholders did not respond for comment while the current shareholders could not be reached.
