The 4,999 dwt bunker tanker Sea Frontier (IMO: 8911126) is grounded in Malaysia waters, not sunk, says a source from Singapore-based Star Formula Marine Services Pte Ltd.
“The Sea Frontier is not sunk and simply grounded; it will return back to operations soon,” he told Manifold Times while identifying the firm as the bunker tanker’s shipowner and operator.
He was clarifying industry rumours circulating on Thursday (31 January) that the vessel had sunk off the coast of Johor, Malaysia on Wednesday night (Singapore time).
The current position of Sea Frontier is 01 21.91° (Latitude) / 104 19.31° (Longitude); the vessel is a Saint Kitts & Nevis flagged, 1989-built bunker tanker.
