Tanker Grounding Update

Friday, February 03, 2006
On behalf of the Unified Command, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) issued a Situation Report stating that the tanker Seabulk Pride grounded in Cook Inlet near Nikiski. No pollution was reported initially. The tanker was apparently pushed aground by an ice floe. A Second Situation Report states that several tugs and a response barge are being mobilized. A small amount of oil was spilled when the tanker was pushed away from its mooring by the ice. A Third Situation Report states that a towing and lightering plan is under development. A Fourth Situation Report indicates that two tugs are attending the tanker and more tugs are en route. Source: HK Law
