K-Sea Barge Strikes Object, Fuel Spills

Friday, November 11, 2005
AP reported that K-Sea Transportation Partners LP on Friday said one of its tank barges struck an underwater object in the middle of the night, taking in water and leaking unspecified amounts of fuel into the Gulf of Mexico. The company, which runs a fleet of about 100 oil tank barges and tug boats, said the tug boat master reported that the barge rammed an unidentified object in gulf waters. The company noted that it carries both protection and indemnity liability insurance, as well as hull and machinery coverage for the vessel, called Rebel DBL 152. K-Sea said it doesn't expect the incident to hurt financial results.
