    It is known that origin is Venezuela and the vessel transporting it was last seen in 2017 in Bangladesh (obviously now smuggling oil and has its transponder off).

    Can't it be tested and compare to other crude to determine the source?

    When are we going to learn to protect are waters at any cost is the wise thing to do. We can live without oil but poison the waters and we all shall perish
