Athens-based Eletson Gas has won the release of one of its midsize LPG carriers from arrest at Mumbai and told TradeWinds the arrest was"totally unlawful".

High Court of Bombay documents confirmed the release of the 35,500-cbm Anafi (built 2009).

The development comes six days after TradeWinds reported that Dubai-based bunkerer Axiom Global Oil & Gas Trading had arrested the ship over a $374,000 claim connected to another vessel, the 69,400-dwt crude tanker Strofades (built 2006).

The Strofades is one of a series of Eletson Corp vessels arrested this year by Chinese lease finance houses.
