The 1994 built 96,347 dwt crude oil tanker Mire
ran aground in the Suez canal on March 28th,
disrupting traffic but did not cause any spillage.
It was refloated by SCA tugs
and towed to Great Bitter lake
where a hole was discovered in its first water ballast tank.
After $1 million [???] was paid to the SCA for their expenses
in refloating the vessel,
the Mire continued its journey
and following repairs was granted its seaworthiness certificate
on April 7.
