Oil spill in Singapore after dredger hits bunker tanker

Singapore’s port authorities are racing to clear up a serious oil slick after a Van Oord dredger hit a bunker tanker near Pasir Panjang Container Terminal along the city-state’s west coast on 14 June.

The allision damaged the cargo tank of the bunker tanker, Marine Honour, which is owned by local physical supplier Straits Bunkering. S&P Global’s vessel-tracking data shows that at the time, Marine Honour was fuelling one of Evergreen Marine Corporation’s ships, the 2,867 TEU Ever Blink.
