The ship called Buenos Aires on Oct 19 then left, and sailed to Puerto Madryn port Argentina, but was refused bunkering, due to outstanding debts of operator company.

The ship returned to Buenos Aires, and was berthed at cargo/passenger pier, disrupting its’ operations. Bunkering was again, refused.
