Kirby to Pay $5 Million for Houston Ship Channel Oil Spill
Kirby Inland Marine has agreed to pay $4.9 Million in civil penalties to settle claims stemming from a 4,000-barrel oil spill in the Houston Ship Channel after one of its oil barges collided with a cargo ship in March 2014, the U.S. Justice Dept. and Coast Guard announced Tuesday. The company has also agreed to implement a fleet-wide improvement program, which includes additional equipment, training, and AIS requirements for every transit throughout its fleet. In its complaint, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas along with the notice of lodging of a consent decree, meaning the settlement was reached with no admission of guilt, the United States alleged that Kirby is liable under the Clean Water Act for the oil spill. The spill occurred on March 22, 2014 when a Kirby tow boat, the Miss Susan, was pushing two 300-foot oil barges in the “Texas City Y” area of the Houston Ship Channel in fog conditions. Despite detecting the nearby presence of a 585-foot bulk cargo ship, the Summer Wind, traveling up the Houston Ship Channel, Kirby’s tow boat and barges tried to cross the channel in front of the cargo ship, resulting in the lead barge being struck by the cargo ship. Approximately 4,000 barrels (168,000 gallons) of heavy marine fuel oil was released from the barge into the waterway. The spill oiled approximately 160 miles of shoreline, including sensitive marsh habitat, the national wildlife refuge on Matagorda Island, Mustang Island State Park and Padre Island National Seashore. https://gcaptain.com/kirby-to-pay-5-million-for-houston-ship-channel-oil-spill/

No fuel left on half submerged longliner
The grounded "Gunag Yuan Yu 239" on the Cakauyawa Reef, off Makuluva Island is free from any fuel leakage. Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) stated that the oil and other pollutants had been successfully removed from the ship which was resting on its starboard side after two unsuccessful attempts had been made to salvage it. Salvors were waiting for the right time to try again. The lingliner ran aground on Sep 13 about 60 metres away from where the naval patrol boat "Kiro" ran aground two months ago. Everything has been removed because it was intended to scuttle it,. The 14 crew members were rescued from the vessel by the Fiji Navy. The rescue operation was conducted by the crew of the "Kula" and navy divers. It was believed the grounding of the vessel was caused by a navigational error but details of the reason it ran aground were still being investigated. MSAF confirmed the vessel was registered in China, however, Golden Ocean Fishing Company Ltd denied earlier reports that the vessel belonged to them. Report with photo: www.fijitimes.com...
