The 99 meter long, dwt 4986 tanker Cosmic 10 collided with the 3159 dwt tanker Cendanawati in South China Sea off Pulau Tioman, Malaysia. The two tankers were approaching each other when the Cosmic 10 steered into the Cendanawati striking it. The mid-section of the engine room filled with water disabling the Cendanawati. The master of the Cendanawati was slightly injured, but the other 19 crewmen were unhurt. The Cendanawati’s cargo of 1600 metric tons of lubricating oil has not been released, but local fishermen have been told to stay clear of the area. The Cendanawati was bound for Sumatra from Thailand before the incident. The Cosmic 10 continued on to Indonesia with no reports of injuries.
