Guinea’s Nimba iron-ore project gets green light to export via Liberia

  BY: REUTERS CONAKRY– Guinea and Liberia signed a deal on Friday to allow several mines in Guinea, including the giant Nimba iron-ore project, to export through Liberia, officials from the West African countries said.

The agreement, which builds on an initial memorandum of understanding signed six years ago, is a victory for US-Canadian investor Robert Friedland‘s HPX, which last month acquired Nimba, a high-grade deposit in southeast Guinea. “The mining projects in question are near the border with Liberia and cannot be profitable if they export through Guinea’s coast,” Guinea’s Mines Minister Abdoulaye Magassouba told Reuters.

PJSC, it loaded 2 million barrels of oil, according to data compiled by Bloomberg and shipping reports. How’s that possible?

The practice of oil tankers turning off their location signals has increased in the past month, according to shipping data, after the U.S. went after a Chinese-owned shipping company it said was moving crude for sanctioned Iran. The U.S.…
