Eight tons of oil spilled in Primorye

In the Khasansky district of the Primorsky Territory, in the area of ​​Cape Molot, an extensive oil slick appeared. The first vice-governor Vasily Usoltsev visited the site. He said: “Now the main thing is to remove oil products from the shore, determine the scale of the oil spill and find out the sources of pollution of the water area. Here, the discharge is about 1,5 - 2 meters near the coast. According to preliminary estimates of specialists, it is about 8 tons. "

According to Peter Romanov, captain of the Zarubino Sea Port, there was no spill as such during bunkering operations. - A special commission has already been created, vessels have been inspected in the water area. So far, there is no evidence that the spill occurred through the fault of the ships. I think, the stain brought from the Bay of Whale, - he said.

According to the director of the Department of Natural Resources and Environment Alexei Pochekunin, the issue of introducing an emergency regime on the territory of the Posyetsky urban settlement is being resolved. Specialists will treat the oil slick with a sorbent and collect it using "traps".
