An offshore tanker collided with a pipelay vessel off the island of Bintan in the South China Sea, sinking the £77 million ship.
The crash with the Antea tanker punctured a hole in the side of the Star Centurion pipelay vessel causing it to tip onto its side.
All crew aboard the vessel have been accounted for and a full emergency procedure was launched “immediately”, according to tanker owner Bernhard Schulte Ship Management.
The Star Centurion is believed to have been headed for Indonesia.
