LNG tanker grounding in Crete

LNG tanker GASLOG SARATOGA (flag – Bermuda [BM]) in load ran aground while approaching Heraklion Crete, Greece. It is known that it happened outside port’s breakwater.

The tanker was running onto coast, obviously due to some navigational or control error. According to AIS track, tanker was refloated at around and anchored on anchorage, off grounding site, most probably for daytime inspection.
