An Arne Blystad-controlled company has arrested an MR2 tanker that was until recently in its own fleet in a previously unpublicised dispute with the financial owner, an affiliate of troubled Croatian shipbuilder Brodotrogir.

The 49,700-dwt Songa Pride (built 2016) was idle off Mexico after a five-year bareboat charter to Songa Product & Chemical III expired in May, but shipowner Trogir Maritime for unknown reasons was unwilling to take redelivery.
