Japan's Fuji Oil loads Iran oil, first cargo since U.S. sanctions waiver

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese refiner Fuji Oil Co 5017.T has lifted Iranian crude oil in the first cargo to head for Japan since the country received a waiver from U.S. sanctions on Tehran, a company spokesman said on Monday.

The VLCC Kisogawa loaded 2 million barrels of Iranian oil on Sunday and is expected to reach Japan on Feb. 9, according to the Fuji official and Eikon data.
