Collision results in oil spill off western Singapore
A collision between two bulk carriers caused an oil spill on the western side of Singapore on Sunday afternoon.
At about 2pm on Sunday, the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) received a report that a Hong Kong-registered bulk carrier named "Sunny Horizon" collided with Korean-registered Liquefied Petroleum Gas carrier "DL Salvia" at the Temasek Fairway.
Less than 60 metric tonnes of bunker was spilled from the DL Salvia. The area of spill is concentrated within the Temasek Fairway, the MPA said. There is no report of injury and port operations remain unaffected.
The MPA dispatched its patrol craft to deal with the oil spill, and oil spill response companies were also activated to augment the patrol craft.
