Satellite imagery and GPS data have confirmed that the Maximo Gorki, Venezuela's only supertanker, conducted a ship-to-ship transfer with a National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) tanker in March. The Iranian vessel transferred two million barrels of condensate to the Venezuelan vessel off the coast of the Maldives. The Maximo Gorki offloaded the Iranian condensate in Venezuela last week.
