Gas Carrier To Get Repairs At Sea

Friday, November 03, 2000
A tanker carrying 500,000 barrels of gasoline, denied access to the New York Harbor due to safety concerns, will make repairs to a leaky hold at sea before coming into port, the ship's manager said. "The current plan involves the vessel moving into a lightering position, discharging the remaining cargo from no. 2 hold, transferring the gasoline ... gas-free the relevant spaces and carry out the required repairs," said Geneva-based Acomarit in a release. "Thereafter, reloading the gasoline and proceeding to the discharge port." The Bahamas flagged ship, Bear G, arrived off New York on October 31, but was denied access to port by the U.S. Coast Guard because the leakage of gasoline posed an 'undue threat,' officials said. Acomarit officials were not immediately available for further details.
