MAERSK HONAM Mar 18 Update. Some advise for minor shippers.
As of 0800 UTC Mar 18, MAERSK HONAM and tugs engaged in salvage were in vicinity 15 50N 065 15E, slowly moving in northern direction, and looking like they don’t know yet where to take the ship to. Probably, there are problems there we know nothing about, but which problems slow down towage and hamper the final decision on port of shelter..
Minor shippers who don’t know yet what to do and what to expect, may find some expertise and advise in comments to this post (see below news text) http://maritimebulletin.net/2018/03/16/maersk-honam-mar-16-update-why-maersk-resembles-soviet-union/
Also, I received a letter today from Singapore-based Marine Survey and Consultancy:
We will be glad to provide our expertise for the above mentioned shippers.

Hope it will help.
