Saudi’s Bahri confirms its oil tanker was hit this week near Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s shipping group Bahri said on Thursday that one of its vessels, oil tanker Abqaiq, was targeted on April 3 in international waters south west of the port of Hodeidah in Yemen.

“The VLCC (very large crude carrier) suffered only minor damage and there were no injuries to our crew aboard. The cargo was unaffected and there was no loss of containment. The crude carrier successfully resumed her northward journey across the Red Sea,” Bahri said in a statement.
