A fuel oil spill from 2004 built 25,400 GT oil/chemical tanker MT Coral Stars occurred at Kamarajar Port, also known as Ennore port, at the Marine Liquid Terminal 1 on Sunday morning due to a ruptured oil transfer hose.
“At around 04:03 hrs, it was noticed that the flexible hose got snapped from the berth side,” said a statement from Kamarajar Port.
“Immediately, the discharge of cargo was stopped by operating the emergency control button.
“Because of the snapping of hose, some quantity of Fuel oil which was mostly contained in the hose got spilled in the sea water in front of the berth area.
“Preliminary estimate of spilled Fuel oil quantity is less than 2 tonnes. The emergency response mechanism was immediately activated and all concerned agencies including Coast Guard swung in action to attend and mitigate the situation.”
An oil boom has since been deployed around the vessel to contained the spill until Monday (19 November), when authorities send oil recovery craft to the vicinity.
“Ariel survey was also done by the Coast Guard along with sea side reconnaissance by their Interceptor Boat so as to assess the spillage surface. Visually it was observed that the spillage is confined within the Break water area of the Port and mostly with the fenced boom area.”
