Japanese shipowner Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) said that its liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier 'Energy Advance' rescued a castaway in the Pacific Ocean about 970km off Luzon Island in the Philippines.

The vessel was underway from the port of Ogishima, Japan to Dampier, Australia on July 1 when it received a rescue request.

The rescue assistance request was issued by the Guam Rescue Coordination Centre, it said.

The LNG carrier rushed to the scene and at around 11:10 the same day, one castaway was safely rescued from the yacht Shuten Dohji ?.

Energy Advance, a Japan registry ship, has 119,233 ton gross tonnage and has 31 crew including Japanese and Indonesian.
