The backlog of Saudi supertankers off Egypt is growing again Ship’s crew

From Prejula Prem (Bloomberg) —

Saudi Arabia-owned supertankers are again crowding the coast of Egypt after signs earlier this week that the backlog is clearing.

The number of supertankers moored near Egypt’s port of Ain Sukhna – which lies at the southern end of a pipeline linking the Red Sea to the Mediterranean – has risen to eight. At its peak, ten ships were stationed off the coast of Egypt.

Six of the tankers, with a capacity of about 12 million barrels, are Saudi-owned and will be loaded at the Kingdom’s Red Sea port of Yanbu. The group’s first tanker has now been floating for 20 days.

The other two Chinese ships, also carrying crude oil from Saudi Arabia, have been waiting offshore for more than 50 days.
