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.

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.
