This tanker was also involved in an incident on 30 June 2001 in Brisbane. The master reported that he had lost 20 litres of crude oil whilst alongside the Caltex refinery berth. The cause was thought to be from a possible leak in the vessel's inert gas seal overboard line. A Marco skimmer was mobilised by the Port of Brisbane to recover the oil. Port of Brisbane advised that they recovered between 800 - 1000 litres of Vung tau crude withg very little water content.
