On 26OCT06, at approx 1220, Liberian tankship PETROKREPOST experienced a loss of propulsion and began taking on water in the engine room while attempting to moor at Valero Refinery IVO MM 125 LMR. The vessel was carrying approx 484k barrels of fuel oil for discharge at the time of the incident. The cause of the casualty was a broken shaft coupling due to severely wasted flange bolts, which sheared and caused the tail shaft to separate from the intermediate shaft and shift aft approx 14 inches, allowing ingress of water into the engine room. No injuries or pollution resulted.
