A crude oil tanker has been detained in the southeast Asian bunkering and shipping hub of Singapore.
Wu Yi San was arrested yesterday by a local law firm and it is currently moored at the eastern bunkering anchorage in the port, court records show.
The ship is controlled by German shipping interests, according to a ship database.
The reasons behind the ship's detention are unclear but they are likely to involve disputes over payment for goods and services.
Wu Yi San, which has a gross tonnage of 164,169, is flagged in Singapore.
Separately, a crude oil tanker was arrested earlier this week in the port.
