While the vessel's registered owners Tevere Shipping Co Ltd and operator Panship Management & Services of Ravenna, Italy, are not members of INTERTANKO, the Association regrets any incident of this nature which could involve pollution.  INTERTANKO is happy to see that all the seafarers were safely rescued by the French and British Navy Helicopter services, who should be congratulated for their role in such hazardous weather conditions. The cause of the incident is still not known. However, we understand that there will be a full inquiry. The voyage charterer was TotalFina and the classification was Rina. At least four classification societies have been involved over the years with this tanker – NKK, ABS, BV and Rina.
