40 cattle rescued from the shore
The task of rescuing the 40 cattle that saved themselves on the shore in the area of ​​Aguada Bay was to go ahead on Aug 21. On the whole the ship was transported 207 cattle. At 6 a.m. the barge "San Andrés" was dispatched for this purpose. The goal was to successfully complete the task until Aug 22. The cattle will be transferred back to their owners from Puerto Natales. Moreover animals which were found dead floating in the sea were recovered with smaller vessels in order to avoid contamination of the waters. Oil spill and contamination experts of Litoral were working at the grounding site of the "Amadeo 1" to prevent an n oil spill from the ship which has on board 120 tonnes of IFO-180 (a mixture of distillate and residual fuel) and 89 cubic meters of diesel oil. Actually there has not been any spill, but 700 meters oil booms were deployed in the case of spillage of fuel from the tanks of the trucks. On Aug 22 the barriers were reinforced with more booms in a similar length. Foreign experts arrived at Puerto Natales in the night awho first made ​​an evaluation to see which equipment was required to extract the fuel from the tanks of the ship.A ROV was due to enter the ferry to assess its stability. The ship is resting on a water depth of around 10 meters with little risk to slip off, but its stability is in doubt as trucks actually fastened with chains may break lose and pose a risk to anyone boarding the wreck.

Giglio council wants platform as artificial reef
The municipal council of Giglio voted to leave the huge underwater platforms which were used for the parbuckling project behind and thus create an artificial reef. This vote goes against the decision of the Italian Ministry of Environment, which announced plans to destroy the six platforms that have ensured the stability of the ship. The people on the island hope to see a rapid colonization of this structure with shellfish and fish. They regard it as a means to revive the main activity on the island and attract divers. An expert in marine biology, Giandomenico Ardizzone said that the structures will soon be covered with algae and fish. A spokesman for the Ministry of Environment says the government has not changed its position.

Greenpeace trailing survey ship in Barents Sea
Advocacy group Greenpeace says protest vessel ESPERANZA is monitoring a preliminary exploration campaign in the Barents Sea out of concern for arctic life. Greenpeace says it's concerned by the decision from the Norwegian government to give consent to seismic survey company Dolphin Geophysical to conduct work in the Barents Sea. Seismic surveys are an early step in oil exploration and give energy companies a better understanding of the reserve potential in a given area. Greenpeace said some of the sound blasts used during seismic surveys may be louder than a nuclear bomb detonation. This, in turn, could pose a significant threat to life in the arctic areas of the Barents Sea. Sune Scheller, a Greenpeace campaigner on board the ESPERANZA said that while there are restrictions on oil operations in the far northern regions of the Barents Sea, the seismic campaign may be a sign of trouble ahead. "It's a step in the wrong direction, in so many ways," he said in a statement. Greenpeace activists were arrested earlier this year for their protest against Norwegian energy company Statoil and Russia's Gazprom. When Statoil said one of its programs failed to uncover commercial reserves of oil or natural gas, Greenpeace said it shows companies shouldn't have been working in arctic waters in the first place.

$100 million a day strike: Tugboat crews warn iron ore industry
Tugboat crews, including deckhands paid more than some New York bankers, are threatening to disrupt shipments from the world’s biggest iron ore port as they negotiate for increased wages and improved conditions. Australian iron ore miners may collectively lose about A$100 million ($93 million) a day as a result of stoppages at Port Hedland, according to BHP Billiton ltd. (BHP), the world’s largest mining company. The port exports about half of the nation’s shipments, forecast to reach A$76.5 billion in the year through June 2015, according to government forecasts. Unions have discussed possible industrial action since March and, depending on the results of voting, rolling stoppages could stretch to November. The deckhands earn at least A$137,000 a year, which can rise to about A$211,000 with benefits and allowances, according to BHP. A junior banker on Wall Street typically makes a base salary in a range of $70,000 to $90,000, with bonuses bringing total pay to as much as $140,000, according to New York-based compensation consultant Johnson Associates Inc.
