Operation ordered to contain oil on sunken oil tanker 24 miles from Chumphon estuary


Recommended Posts



Thailand’s Marine Department has been ordered to coordinate with the Royal Thai Navy to take immediate steps to contain oil spilling from a sunken tanker in the Gulf, before any reaches the shoreline of the southern province of Prachuap Khiri Khan.


The Thai oil tanker, Por Aandaman 2, which was reportedly carrying 500,000 litres of diesel oil, started to take on water as it was anchored in the Gulf to provide fuel to trawlers, about 24 nautical miles from the Chumphon estuary.


The tanker eventually sank at about 7.15pm yesterday (Saturday) in 50 metres of water, but the captain, Wayu Moryadee, and five crew members were rescued by nearby vessel.
