Oil Spill at Port Canaveral is Contained

By SEO Admin on January 24, 2011

Florida Today-December 30, 2010-Andrew Knapp-According to this article fuel, from 10 barrels that fell during a ship to ship transfer leaked into the waters of Port Canaveral. The standard petroleum barrels, each containing 42 gallons of ship fuel, dropped to the deck of a barge after they were moved from a commercial ship. A small amount of the fuel leaked into the water at the north cargo pier, forming a shin on the surface. The article goes onto say that the spill occurred at the Sea Port Canaveral terminal in the central portion of the facility. The article is quick to point out that this is refined oil that ships run on-not like the crude oil from a deep water horizon. Apparently no shipping or recreational boating has been impacted by this spill.
