Around 800 of the ship's 1,196 Sailors and Marines survived the sinking, but after four to five days in the water - suffering exposure, dehydration, drowning and shark attacks - only 316 survived.

Hafnia Says  Product Tanker Market Weakened

Hafnia Says Product Tanker Market Weakened

The overall product tanker market weakened further during the second quarter of 2017, reflecting the ongoing imbalance between supply and demand of tonnage, said Denmark based Hafnia Tankers.   High inventories and reduced trading activity did not support any additional increase of freight rates, however we did see the start of reduced oil inventories by the end of Q2, which in combination with a reduced orderbook, as well as growing oil consumption, are needed for an improved market.
