Singapore-flagged tanker Sophie 9 was arrested in the Port of Singapore on 25 June under the instruction of local law firm Rajah & Tann.
The 6,141 dwt vessel with IMO registration number of 9553270 is owned by Singapore-based DH Marine and managed by Oceanlink Services.
“The vessel shall be handed over to the court by 30 June and out from our ship management,” Oceanlink Services told IHS Maritime.
The reason for the ship arrest is not known, but ship arrests are common in payment dispute instances.
According to AISlive ship tracking, the 2011-bulit tanker has anchored at the eastern side of Singapore waters at 001°17.708’N, 103°57.354’E.
