Reuters are reporting that the Al Khattiya LNG tanker has suffered damage to its hull in a collision with an oil tanker off the UAE.
Sitting empty off the UAE port of Fujairah, the tanker was struck by the Jag Laadki operated by India's Great Eastern Shipping Company.
No injuries or pollution were reported in the 23 February incident, but two of the Al Khattiya's ballast tanks were breached with a loss of some water.
Shell said cargo tank pressures were stable indicating no loss of LNG containment on the Al Khattiya, which has a capacity of 210 000 m3.
The vessel is owned by Qatari shipping group Nakilat. It remains at anchor while further checks are being made.
