ETC volume is 173810B.
OSIR says 7.3MMG (24,830 tonnes) light crude oil.
Ship was loaded enroute from Oman to Japan.
Japanese source puts spill at 25,000 tons of crude oil.
Other sources about the same, except for an Indian listing
which puts the spill at 40,000 tons
which seems quite unlikely if only one tank was breached,
even for a Marpol single hull.

We need more info.
Photos show the penetration is on port side just aft of the manifold.
Damage extends from the deck down to about 6 or 7 meters
below the light load line.
Longitudinal extent is maybe 30 meters.
Looks like a fairly high angle of impact.
Hard to see but penetration is at least 10 m.
