A shipment of diesel at the center of a European Union sanctions-busting claim had an inconsistency in its paperwork.
Spain’s biggest oil refiner, Repsol SA, said on April 27 that Russian diesel has been entering the country in breach of EU sanctions. While the company didn’t name any tankers bringing in the fuel, at least one of them is the STI Clapham, according to a person familiar with the matter.
