A team of three "experts" boarded the ship on Tuesday after the government of Nicolás Maduro gave the green light to do so on Monday, the Trinidadian minister said.

The results revealed that " there was no water entry on the vessel noted by the team, which means that the entry reported in early September no longer exists" , said Mr Khan .

“False news”

On August 12, continued Mr. Girot, several PDVSA employees had already reported that the vessel had entered an 8% bank. Similarly, the engine room was flooded and the bilge pumps were out of service. PDVSA called these comments "fake news" .

According to Mr. Khan, the delegation reported that maintenance tasks were being carried out on the vessel, such as repair and replacement of pumps and electric motors.

Uncontrolled oil spills are frequent in Venezuela due to the lack of maintenance, or even the abandonment, of infrastructure.

Production, by far Venezuela's largest source of income, has grown from 3.2 million barrels per day twelve years ago to 400,000 barrels per day today.

The Venezuelan opposition and analysts point to corruption and mismanagement to explain this collapse. The socialist government of Nicolas Maduro puts forward the American embargo on Venezuelan crude .
