Port Of Los Angeles Rammed By Second Oil Spill In A Month



The Port of Los Angeles has witnessed bunker fuel spillage mid-march and the news can be accessed from MFAME.

Here is one more incident where the Port of Los Angeles has been hit hard with the second oil spill incident in the same month.

The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating a tanker ship – TULA, after a report of an oil spill in the Los Angeles Harbor on Thursday morning.

The spill was reported at the Vopak Terminal at around 10:50 a.m., according to the Coast Guard.  An unknown amount was spilled.  The majority of the oil spill was contained on the pier whereas some of the oil-water mixture entered the water, according to the Coast Guard.

Oil-spill response organizations have been contacted and are conducting clean-up operations.  Containment booms have been deployed around the tanker ship TULA to minimize the contamination, the Coast Guard said.   The ship has been ordered not to leave the port until it has been decontaminated and its movement in the port has been restricted.
