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.
