From The Star – Oil spill in Singapore Strait has no lasting effect


Taken from The Star, dateline 2010-06-02:

KUCHING: The oil spill from the collision of two vessels in the Singapore Strait appears to have no lasting effect on the affected coastal areas, Natural Resources and Envi­ronment Minister Datuk Douglas Uggah Embas said.

He said he visited the area last Sunday and could see the difference between one spot which had been cleaned up and the areas yet to be cleaned.

“Once the beach has been cleaned, there is no effect and no more odour of oil because the sea current is moving and there is clean water flowing in,” he told reporters at his Gawai open house at Taman BDC here yesterday.
