Oil slick approaching Bangsaphan coastline

Bid to prevent oil slick reaching Gulf of Thailand shore
The Marine Department and Royal Thai Navy are trying to prevent oil leaking from a sunken tanker from reaching the coastline in Chumphon and Prachuap Khiri Khan provinces.

The department worked with the Tor 114 patrol boat and navy aircraft to contain an oil slick off Chomphon by deploying booms and using a solvent on Saturday night.

Deputy Transport Minister Athirat Rattanaseth said on Sunday that oil was drifting towards the coast in Pathiu district of Chumphon and three neighbouring districts of Prachuap Khiri Khan to the north: Bang Saphan Noi, Bang Saphan and Thap Sakae.

Another oil spill was detected on Wednesday from a sunken oil ship in the Gulf of Thailand.
The Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency said the 40-kilometer wide oil spill occurred when a diesel oil transport ship, Por Andaman 2, which carries 500,000 liters of oil, went down 24 nautical miles off the coast of Chumphon on January 22.
