05 Mar 2019

The Canadian Coast Guard and Transport Canada are currently investigating an oil spill from the North Atlantic Kairos (IMO 9373943) at the Port Aux Basques harbour in Canada, reports CBC.

Operational staff noticed an oil sheen emerging from the bunker tanker while delivering product to a Marine Atlantic oil storage tank on Sunday (3 March).

North Atlantic Refining, which operates the vessel, confirmed the leak was discovered “at the same time as the North Atlantic Kairos was in the process of delivering product to a Marine Atlantic tank.”

The amount of oil spilled was not available, but the company said it will provide updates as they come.

The North Atlantic Kairos is still at Port aux Basques on Tuesday, according to the MarineTraffic website.
