Two tankers, the BW Lesmes carrying liquefied natural gas and the Burri carrying oil products, collided in the Suez Canal, causing a brief disruption in traffic. The collision occurred due to a mechanical malfunction on the BW Lesmes and strong currents in the canal. Tugboats were deployed to clear the waterway and both vessels were successfully towed away. No injuries or pollution were reported, and the vessels appeared to have minimal damage. This incident recalls the high-profile grounding of the Ever Given container ship in the same canal in 2021, which caused a significant disruption to global trade. The Suez Canal is a crucial passage for oil, natural gas, and cargo transportation, and it generates significant revenue for Egypt.
