Ennore port in India is handling another damaging oil spill today. The product tanker Coral Stars was discharging oil at the port when a hose snapped at 04:00 on Sunday morning with around two tonnes of furnace oil spilling into the water.
The coast guard has been working to contain the spill with a boom, three vessels and a helicopter deployed.
Last year, two ships collided at the same port, causing an oil spill of more than 251 tonnes, affecting over 35 km of Chennai’s coastline.
