Oil Spills Pollute Jakarta Waters

Friday, March 03, 2006
The waters in the Kepulauan Seribu Seribu National Park (TNKS) in the Java Sea north of Jakarta were last week polluted by oil spills from oil rigs of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) and BP Indonesia or from passing tankers, Antara reported. The TNKS authority has caused the oil spills from rigs of the Chinese company and the subsidiary of United Kingdom-based BP (British Petroleum) or passing tankers had been polluting the waters around Putri and Perak islets since Feb 18. The TNKS had also found that the polluted area was widening as the oil spills were also spotted in waters around Putri Timur and Bira Besar islets on Feb 19. The pollutants reportedly had also made the waters around Putri Barat, Kayu Angin Bira, Belanda, Petondan and Pelangi islets dirty. Winds blowing from the northwest and north caused a widening of the polluted area. (Source: Antara)
