Shen Neng 1: no recommended routes
Shen Neng 1 had lodged its shipping plan, detailing a short-cut beneath Douglas Shoal, with maritime authorities before leaving Gladstone. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said no one saw the plan, because the policy was to leave the route to the "discretion of the ship's captain". The statement also said "there are no recommended routes".
Captain Wang (Wang Jichang ) was "happy to co-operate" with the Queensland Government over the investigation.
