Ship Blocks Traffic In Suez Canal Due To Engine Trouble

Ship Blocks Traffic In Suez Canal Due To Engine Trouble

As Yogi Berra might say, this sounds like “de ja vu all over again.”

Little more than a week has passed since the Ever Given was successfully refloated and freed from a particularly narrow passage in Egypt’s Suez Canal, yet the canal is already struggling with another potential blockage Tuesday.

Shipping firm Sharaf Group reported that traffic in the Suez has been halted after a ship was stricken with engine trouble. Data from tankertrackers.com showed the blockage in the northbound lane, along with a handful of tugboats dispatched to aid the ship.

The delay is already slowing traffic in the canal.

In other news, the Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday that a million barrels of Iranian crude are being shipped through the Suez to Syria.
