MPA Coordinates Clean-Up of Oil Spill in Singapore’s Waters

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) continued to coordinate the containment and clean-up of the oil spillage in Singapore’s waters following two collisions south of Jurong Island and off Marina South on 29 and 30 January 2014 respectively.

A total of 24 craft and 120 personnel from MPA and oil spill response companies were involved in the effort. Most of the affected areas have been cleaned up, except for minor oil patches in the vicinity of the Southern Islands.

MPA is still monitoring the situation in case there are undetected patches of oil. Response craft and personnel will remain on site in the interim.

Vessel traffic in the Strait of Singapore and port waters remain unaffected so as port operations.
