The vessel was part of a 25 vessels convoy and was the number 19. All Southbound vessels cleared the Canal, while 6 vessels were detained from the Northbound convoy.

Suez Canal tugs managed to float the vessel and it is now being towed to the Canal Exit from the eastern branch. All vessels detained have cleared the Canal.

Suez Canal tugs took immediate action to refloat the vessel. No damages were reported, and both convoys (South- & North-bound) are operating.

Reportedly, the vessel was the crude oil tanker Zaliv Amurskiy, which is owned by the Russian shipping company Sovcomflot.
