On the evening of August 17, 2003 at approximately 2130 the M/T AFRAGEM was approaching Valero Dock #3 in the Corpus Christi when it suffered a mechanical failure in that it did not respond to an order for astern propulsion. The vessel was assisted by two tugs to complete its mooring evolution. On August 18th the Chief Engineer diagnosed the problem as a faulty air control valve, the valve was replaced with another valve from storage aboard the vessel. A complete test of the system was conducted and all engine orders responded properly.
