    Burning Iranian Oil Tanker Off China's Coast In Danger Of Exploding, Sinking

    Yesterday, we reported that in a bizarre and still unexplained incident, no less than 32 sailors were missing after an Iranian oil tanker sailing to South Korea collided with a cargo ship off the east coast of China and caught fire on Saturday evening. The Sanchi collided with the Chinese cargo vessel CF Crystal about 160 nautical miles off the coast of Shanghai on Saturday, with Chinaís Ministry of Transport reporting that search and rescue operations were under way, and that oil had spilled on the water.
    "The accident caused oil tanker 'SANCHI' to catch on fire, tilting to the right, losing contact with the crew," China's ministry of transportation said, noting that as of Sunday morning "'SANCHI' is floating and still on fire. There are fuel stains on the sea, the rescue is going on."

    One day later, according to the latest update, the 32 crew members of the vessel are still missing, however where things have taken a turn for the worse is that according to Chinese state media, the flaming ship is now in danger of either exploding or sinking.
    China, South Korea and the U.S. sent vessels and planes to search for Sanchiís missing crew, 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, the Associated Press reported.
    Sanchi was ferrying 1 million barrels of condensate - a hydrocarbon liquid thatís used to make petrochemicals - to Daesan, according to a Hanwha Total spokesman. The firm plans to use its stockpiles as a replacement for the supply.

    A second explosion on board the Iranian tanker Sanchi, which had been burning for a week, sank the vessel, leaving no hope for any survivors from the 32-strong crew.
    The Sanchi carried about a million barrels of Iranian condensate to South Korea and collided with a Chinese freighter carrying American wheat on January 6th near Shanghai. The vessel’s cargo is worth around US$60 million at current crude oil prices. The cause of the collision remains unclear, but the rescue teams have recovered the tanker’s voice data recorder, which could shed some light on the collision.
