 Maersk Honam  (Cargo Ship)
44 min ago by Timsen

Maersk Honam in the Gulf of Oman
The "Maersk Honam" has reached the Gulf of Oman under tow to an anchorage next to Jebel Ali. Maersk has been granted permission from the port authorities of Jebel Ali to dock the vessel next to Jebel Ali, and they expected it to be at the anchorage in the second half of April, if everything goes well. The fire is under control, but there are still areas where it is not yet fully defeated. At the anchorage hot spots in the affected areas will be cooled and completely extinguished. Further necessary work to bring the ship to the dock will be carried out to ensure cargo discharge and vessel stability. Once these activities have been completed, the vessel will be moved from the anchorage to the Jebel Ali terminal to begin unloading. However, the arrival time depends on a number of unknown factors and may change. The port stay and unloading of the ship were expected to result in high extraordinary costs. Maersk Line therefore has declared General Average, after which all parties with a financial interest in the ship in question must divide the losses proportionally.

The ship finally entered the port on Sep 14. The authorities of Granada decided to authorize the unloading of the ship in the port of Motril where the owners of the ship had warehouses and facilities. Up to 200 people participated in the following unloading operation, which was carried out with the maximum safety measures and lasted 20 days.

Dredger set oil pipeline alight
A Unified Command consisting of Coast Guard, Texas General Land Office and RLB Contracting Inc., was responding to a gas pipeline fire near Port O’Connor, Texas. Coast Guard Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi watchstanders received a mayday in the evening of Apri l7, 2018, from the captain of the "Jonathon King Boyd", who reported the vessel was on fire after hitting a gas pipeline while conducting dredging operations. Genesis Energy owns the pipeline. The 10 crewmembers aboard the "Jonathan King Boyd" were safely removed by the crew of the good Samaritan vessel "First State", which was first on scene. The fire onboard the dredging barge was meanwhile extinguished and was closely monitored for the potential of re-flash. Port Lavaca Fire Department and a fire-fighting barge are on scene to conduct fire fighting operations. Horizon Environmental has placed containment boom around the "Jonathon King Boyd" as a precaution in case fuel or oil discharge. A one-mile safety zone remained in effect around the dredge. The Intracoastal Waterway remains closed to traffic from mile marker 468 to mile marker 474 to include the Matagorda Ship Channel from the jetties to seven nautical miles inside the bay. Natural gas continued to burn from the pipeline, with the pipeline’s pressure decreasing. The impacted pipeline is secured; the remaining gas was residual.

 Ever Judger  (Cargo Ship)
16 hours ago by Timsen

Bulkcarrier suspected to have ruptured oil pipeline
Indonesia on Apr 18 blamed the "Ever Judger" for causing a major oil spill off Borneo island that killed five and sparked its worst environmental disaster in years. She was the only cargo vessel in the area at the time of the accident, and the ship's 12-ton anchor was likely what ruptured an undersea pipe. Divers found a nearly 500 meter long gash torn into the seabed which resembled the vessel's anchor. It was not clear if the Chinese captain or any of the 22 crew members were to be charged. Vessels are allowed to sail in the area but they are prohibited from dropping anchor to avoid damaging the undersea pipes. The leakage started in waters near Balikpapan city and spread more than 24 km, coating large areas of the coast in thick black sludge. Five fishermen died in a fire sparked by workers who were trying to clear the spill by burning it off the water's surface. The oil pipe belonged to Indonesia's national oil company Pertamina. The "Ever Judger" which was damaged by the fire remained stationary in pos. S 01° 15.72' E 116° 47.29' on the inner anchorage of Balikpapan.
