MPA Confirms No Oil Spilled in Singapore Port

Friday, December 06, 2002
The Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore confirmed that no spilled oil has entered Singapore’s port waters after a collision between a cargo vessel and an oil tanker.Some scattered patches of oil sheen were sighted in the Singapore Strait, south of Pulau Sebarok. Two MPA anti-pollution craft were deployed to clean the patches of oil sheen. The Agate collided with Panama-registered ship, Tian Yu, off the east coast of Singapore. The Singapore-registered aframax tanker, Agate, is currently safely anchored about 6 nautical miles (approximately 12km) north east of Horsburgh Lighthouse. Its manager, World Tankers Management, deployed six anti-pollution craft to contain and collect the spilled oil. The spilled oil has been contained within oil booms. Action is being taken to dispose of it. The MPA continues to monitor the situation. All port operations continue to function normally. Vessel traffic within our waters and the Singapore Strait remain unaffected.
