Explosion on LPG carrier - two killed

The South Korean LPG carrier DL Calla suffered an explosion off Malaysia's Terengganu coast last week resulting in two crew members being killed and two others injured. The Panamax sized vessel was in transit from South Korea to Thailand at the time and reportedly suffered a cargo leak causing the explosion and minor fire that was rapidly extinguished. The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) sent a rescue team to the location of the accident. The vessel suffered minimal damage from the explosion and continued on its passage to Thailand. The vessel is operated by Petredec Limited a global company with a long history of buying, selling, transporting, storage and distribution of LPG.
