Les opérations de remise à flot du pétrolier géant Alex, de l’armement belge Euronav, sont toujours en cours dans le détroit de Karimata, qui sépare les îles de Sumatra et Bornéo en Indonésie. Le Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) est échoué depuis maintenant huit jours sur un fond de vase.
Il est plein de pétrole pour les Chinois.
..................A very large crude carrier belonging to Belgian tanker company Euronav ran aground Wednesday while carrying a cargo of crude oil through the Java Sea, but the ship manager says the vessel is in good condition even as it remains stuck in the mud.http://gcaptain.com/euronav-crude-oil-t ... -java-sea/
Euronav Ship Management confirmed Thursday that their 299,446 dwt VLCC Alex was involved in a grounding incident on Wednesday, April 12 at approximately 10:15 UTC.
The Belgium-flagged MT Alex, which is laden with oil, was sailing in the waters between the Borneo and Sumatra on its way to China, when she apparently ran aground on a “soft mud bottom”, Euronav said in a statement. No injuries or pollution have been reported, and the vessel is said to be “safely aground” in good weather.
“No breach of hull, water ingress or mechanical failure are apparent in the assessment made by the crew, while the Class surveyor is expected to board as soon as possible,” the statement said.
