Singapore jails Vietnam tanker captain over Shell oil theft

A VIETNAMESE tanker captain has been jailed in Singapore for his part in a scheme that saw about US$150 million (RM621 million) worth of oil stolen from energy giant Shell’s largest refinery, said authorities today.

The theft took place over two years from a huge industrial site in the city state, described by the Anglo-Dutch firm as one of its most important production centres in the world.
