Dredgers working to dislodge the stranded ship have so far shifted 27,000 cubic metres of sand.
The 400-metre (430-yard) long Ever Given became jammed diagonally across a southern section of the canal more than five days ago.
Shipping rates for oil product tankers nearly doubled after the ship became stranded.
