Update on MPA’s Oil Spillage Clean-Up (Singapore)

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) continues 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.

The clean-up efforts have resulted in significant improvements to Singapore’s port waters, except for minor oil patches in the vicinity of the Southern Islands, and a few patches of oil at Pulau Seringat shoreline which are being removed by response craft and personnel using oil booms and skimmers.

MPA continues to work closely with the National Environment Agency and the Sentosa Development Corporation on the landward clean-up operations.

MPA is monitoring the situation in case there are undetected patches of oil.

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