Greece-based shipping firm GasLog said that its LNG carrier, which is on charter to US exporter Cheniere, has rescued eight people in the Mediterranean Sea.
The LNG carrier in question is the 180,000-cbm X-DF GasLog Warsaw, delivered by Samsung Heavy Industries in 2019.
“Well done to all the crew on the GasLog Warsaw and thank you to our charterer
Cheniere for accommodating this mid-voyage rescue operation of eight individuals on a small boat in the Mediterranean,” GasLog said in a social media post on Thursday.
“The crew arrived just in time and brought them safely onboard, shortly after their boat sank,” the shipping firm said, adding that the vessel later “sailed to shore and transferred them to the local coast guard.”
The shipping firm did not reveal any additional information.
GasLog Warsaw has last month picked up a cargo at Cheniere’s Corpus Christi LNG plant in Texas, according to its AIS data.
Moreover, the vessel was on Friday sailing in the Ionian Sea, part of the Mediterranean, offshore Italy.
