MT KERALA - update 

M/T Kerala has left Venezuelan waters and is heading east, to sail to an available shipyard
for full inspection and repairs. 

It is essential that the vessel can be accomodated and there are a number of suitable shipyards
that we are reviewing to ensure the right expertise, spare parts and equipment are available.
We await notification from the ship's classification society to confirm the most suitable location
where the necessary repair work can be carried out.

MT Kerala has undergone an initial assessment and the vessel's seaworthy condition is well within
acceptable limits. The vessel's equipment and machinery is intact and fully functional.  

Dynacom Tankers would like to make clear that all the crew are well and safe on board
and there is not any danger to the ship or the environment.

Dynacom Tankers has notified all relevant authorities and activated its emergency response team. 
We remain in contact with the vessel and our priority is to ensure the safety of the crew, the environment and the vessel.
