    The 272-metre-long and 46-metre-wide vessel has belonged to Symphony Shipholding SA and NGM Energy since 2019, according to the Equasis website, which shows safety-related data on ships and maritime companies.

    China's Shandong Maritime Safety Administration announced on Tuesday that the tanker A Symphony, carrying around one million barrels of oil, had spilled some of it following a collision. According to preliminary reports, the vessel collided with the bulk carrier Sa Justice at around 8:50 local time (0:50 a.m. GMT).

    "The force of the impact on the forward port side caused a breach in way of No. 2 Port ballast tank, with a quantity of oil lost into the ocean. All of the crew have since been accounted for, and there are no injuries", Goodwood Ship Management said, as cited by Reuters.
