Oil leaks from supply vessel during refuelling

Saturday 24 September 2011 Page 8



AROUND 1,500 litres of oil leaked from an offshore supply vessel in Aberdeen harbour yesterday.

The spill occurred when the Skandi Foula, owned by Shell, was being refuelled at Torry dock.

A clean-up operation was under way last night and it is understood around 500 litres of oil were recovered.

A spokesman for Shell said the leak had been stopped.

It is the second reported oil spill the company has experienced in as many months.

In August the oil giant faced criticised after more than 200 tonnes of oil spilled into the North Sea from its Gannet Alpha platform, about two miles east of Aberdeen. It was the worst oil spill in the region in more than a decade.

    The vessel is not owned by Shell, it is owned and operated by the Norwegian company DOF.
    The Skandi Fouler is however under contract with Shell, but there probably wasn`t a single Shell employee involved in this incident.
