Spill in Portland

Friday, November 03, 2006
The Coast Guard is investigating a minor fuel oil spill that occurred Monday night at approximately 7:00 p.m. at Terminal 6 in Portland from the HYUNDAI NO. 106, a Liberian flagged car carrier. The leak was discovered by the ship's crew during mooring operations when they observed a slight seepage from the vessel's side. Their crew quickly determined that the oil leak was due to several small cracks and they immediately reomoved the fuel from the tank. Coast Guard Sector Portland personnel responded to the incident to ensure all repairs were properly conducted, that all spilled oil was contained and to determine the cause of the cracks. The amount of fuel oil released into the water is estimated to be less than 50 gallons. A Coast Guard Air Station Astoria HH-60 helicopter crew was dispatched at 7:00 a.m. today to conduct aerial surveillance of the Columbia River near the spill and concluded there was no product in the water. Coast Guard Sector Portland is preventing the ship from leaving the port until proper repairs of the cracks have been completed and properly inspected.
