As Saudi Arabia leads three other Arab nations in accusing Qatar of links to terror groups and being too close to Iran, one thing is becoming increasingly clear in the oil market: Tensions have yet to reach a point where the world's biggest crude exporter is disrupting its tiny neighbor's shipments. The number of tankers that are filling with Qatari crude along with that of Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates have actually increased since tensions escalated on June 5, according to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg for the 25 days before and after that date.Since then, 17 tankers have loaded crude in Qatar and either Saudi Arabia or the UAE, or both.Others, like the DHT Falcon, have loaded in only Saudi Arabia and Qatar, while tankers including the Takamine, have taken on crude in UAE and Qatar.
