MAERSK NAVIGATOR SUPERTANKER STILL SPILLING CRUDE OFF SUMATRA
Crude oil from the Maersk Navigator supertanker was still spilling into the sea a week after it collided with a smaller tanker off the northwest tip of Sumatra. Oil from the Maersk Navigator was said by its owner and operator A.P. Moller Singapore Pte. Ltd. to be dispersing naturally Jan. 27 at "a satisfactory distance" from shore. Fires onboard the ship had been doused and dispersant spraying halted, although an extra boom and more dispersant were being sent to the site from Singapore.
