A Product tanker VF TANKER-7, Friday, ran aground on 158-kilometer mark in Volga-Caspian Sea Channel in Moscow, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Product tanker VF TANKER-7 ran aground on 158-kilometer mark in Volga-Caspian Sea Channel in the afternoon Sep 3, Moscow time (according to Emergency Agency report), while en route from Astrakhan, Volga river, Russia, to Baku, Azerbaijan.

“Hull wasn’t breached, no leak reported or spotted in the area. As of 1730 Moscow time Sep 3, ship’s status unclear, she’s probably still aground, no AIS during last 14 hours, probably she ran aground at around 0000 UTC Sep 3.

“Channel traffic said to be uninterrupted, but there are clusters of cargo ships anchored S and N of the grounded tanker, bound for Astrakhan and for southern Caspian seaports, so maybe traffic is restricted, after all.”
