There has been no further leakage of oil from the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carrier DL Salvia, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

But as a precautionary measure, the authorities have deployed an oil boom around the vessel, which has been at West Jurong anchorage since Sunday.

The clean-up of Sunday's nearly 60 tonne oil spill off Jurong Island is continuing, said MPA.

Yesterday, patches of treated oil were seen at reclamation sites on the western part of Jurong Island and Tuas View Extension, and at a rock bund in Sultan Shoal, which is about 700m east of Temasek Fairway, where the oil spill is concentrated.
