Gas Tanker Repair Could Take Two Days

Monday, November 06, 2000
Repair work on a tanker carrying 500,000 barrels of gasoline which was last week denied entry into New York Harbor due to an internal leak, could take two days, a spokesman for the vessel's operator said. Questions remained, however, on when and where the work on the ship, the Bear G, would take place, said Pat Adamson, spokesperson for Geneva-based Acomarit. "The work could start today, but there are many issues about regulatory jurisdiction and so on," said Adamson. "It is never as easy as deciding and getting to work." The Bear G, chartered by New York-based Novarco Ltd., was held up 12 miles off the New York Harbor by the U.S. Coast Guard last week after it reported a 600,000 gallon (14,300 barrels) internal leak from a hold, probably due to a failed gasket.
