Efforts to clean up an oil spill continued today after the collision of a Hong Kong-registered bulk carrier and a Korean-registered Liquefied Petroleum Gas carrier at the Temasek Fairway outside Singapore.
No one was injured and port operations were not affected by the incident, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. The ships were safely anchored and workers were cleaning up the spill, the MPA said.
Oil dispersants were being used to break up the oil slick caused by the leakage of less than 60 metric tons of bunker from the Korean ship, DL Salvia, and oil boom was being used on a precautionary basis. The vessel was no longer leaking, officials said.
