    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for brining this to our attention.

    I have already escalated this case to our competent team for further analysis. I will let you know as soon as I have any updates.

    In the meantime, please feel free to let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

    Hello again Paul,

    Thank you for waiting while we worked on your suggestion.

    After further analysis, our technical team detected this terminal was automatically created from a floating storage ( https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:712371 ) and is considered to be a moving port, so it automatically obtains as a country value, the Flag of the vessel. Meaning the port is not an actual port but rather an entity made just to record port calls because a vessel is acting as floating storage.

    According to our policy, we cannot provide information about which territorial waters the position of a floating storage belongs to.

    In addition, this would demand a manual change that could have a negative effect in our database.

    I hope you understand why we cannot proceed with the changes.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I may help you with. 

    I'll be glad to!
