Oil Spills in Sea Outside Singapore After Two Tankers Collide

A collision between two ships resulted in an oil spill in the sea outside Singapore, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. The accident between bulk carrier, Sunny Horizon, and liquefied petroleum gas carrier, Dl Salvia, happened at the Temasek Fairway, about 700 meters east of Sultan Shoal at 2 p.m. local time, the port authority said.

Workers are now cleaning up the oil spill. The two vessels involved are safely anchored in the West Jurong anchorage. No one was injured and port operations remain unaffected, the MPA said.
