Coast Guard: Ships Minimize Speed in Texas Harbor

Tuesday, June 06, 2006
Ships are limited to daylight operation at minimum speed in the inner harbor of Corpus Christi, Texas, as the clean up of an oil spill from last week continues, the U.S. Coast Guard said. Most of the waste oil-water mixture spilled into the inner harbor on from Valero Energy Corp.'s Corpus Christi refining complex has been cleaned up, but workers are still cleaning docks and shoreline. An estimated 3,690 barrels of oil and water have been collected since lightning struck a containment tank at the Valero complex early on Thursday morning, the Coast Guard said. Source: Reuters
