A Shipping Corporation of India LNG carrier collided with a very large crude carrier at a Fujairah anchorage in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday evening, resulting a major damage to the oil tanker.
AIS video of the accident shows the 155,000 cbm, Maltese-flagged LNG carrier Aseem struck the port side of the 281,400 dwt, Hong Kong-flagged Shinyo Ocean as both vessels were maneuvering with the anchorage around 2000 UTC on 24 March 2019.
Photos of the Shinyo Ocean shows a significant gash in the portside hull near the bow.
Both ships remain at anchor off Fujairah as of Tuesday.
The Aseem was headed for Qatargas’ Ras Laffan LNG terminal when the accident occurred.
Below is an AIS animation of the accident:
No word on any pollution resulting from the incident.
The Aseem, built in 2009, is majority-owned by Shipping Corporation of India (SCI) and chartered to Petronet LNG.
