Algeria has tendered for 90,000 tons of maize plus 30,000 tons of barley for delivery before the end of the year.

Iran is still working a tender of 180,000 tons of maize November/December dates.

South Korea (MFG) has purchased a Panamax (60,000 tons) December/January dates.

New “bonus” seasons for crude oil exports:

In its desperation to obtain hard currency (USD) the Government has instituted a scheme, starting September 27th, whereby crude oil exporters may be able to collect 25 per cent of their exports at a preferential exchange rate. The “official” exchange for US Dollars is USD 1.00=Pesos 350.00. Under this scheme, 25 per cent (one quarter) of the USD being brought into the country will be exchanged at a preferential rate of USD 1,00=Pesos 763.00.

Hopefully, this will generate more exports.


Bunker deliveries at Zona Comun:


As always, the STS operation is up to the discretion of the Master’s of the vessels involved.


Will keep you posted.
