Waters affected by oil spill cleaned up

Operations to contain and clean-up an oil spillage in Singapore’s waters following two collisions south of Jurong Island and off Marina South on Jan 29 and 30 respectively are still ongoing.

However, most of the affected areas have been cleaned up, except for minor oil patches in the vicinity of the Southern Islands, said the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) yesterday.

A total of 24 craft and 120 personnel from MPA and oil spill response companies were involved in the effort.

The MPA is still monitoring the situation.

Response craft and personnel will remain on site in the interim. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
