Suez Canal opened to sea traffic

After the ship accident in the Suez Canal in Egypt, one of the most important waterways of the world, the stopped sea traffic returned to normal.

In a written statement made by the Suez Canal Administration, it was stated that the efforts to rescue the giant container ship EVER GIVEN, which crashed in the canal, are continuing.

However, in the statement that the channel was reopened to sea traffic, it was stated that the ship crashed into the shore due to the decrease in visibility as a result of the sandstorm and bad weather conditions.

The navigation security of 10 tankers carrying 13 million barrels of crude oil was ensured as the sea traffic stopped after the ship accident in the Suez Canal in Egypt returned to normal.

Thus, the road to 10 tankers carrying 13 million barrels of crude oil was cleared as the sea traffic stopped after the ship accident in the Suez Canal returned to normal.

Petroleum analysis and monitoring firm Vortexa announced that the shipment of 13 million barrels of crude oil could be halted as a result of the compression of maritime traffic after the accident.

Container ship EVER GIVEN went off course on the Suez Canal and crashed into the shore. As a result of the ship squeezing transversely in the narrow channel and closing the passageway, the sea traffic in the channel had completely stopped.

It was learned that the 399-meter-long, 59-meter-wide Panama-flagged container ship was sailing from China to the Netherlands.
