Pursuant to section 9(b)(2) of the ISA and the authority delegated to the Secretary of State in the Delegation Memorandum, the Secretary now has determined and certified to Congress that Allvale Maritime Inc., Société Anonyme Monégasque D'Administration Maritime Et Aérienne, and Tanker Pacific Management (Singapore) Pte.
