Super-tanker in collision off Singapore


A Malta-registered super-tanker collided with a container ship in the Strait of Singapore, causing an oil spill near the world’s second busiest container port. Oman Shipping’s 320,000-dwt Seeb (built 2011) clashed with the Kota Tenaga (built 2002) near Pulau Sebarok yesterday. About five metric tons of marine fuel oil leaked from the Kota Tenaga, a Singapore-flagged vessel, after it made contact with the SEEB, considered to be a very large crude carrier, around 2.7 kilometers (1.7 miles) South of Pulau Sebarok island, the Maritime and Port Authority said in a  statement. The incident was reported at 9 p.m. local time, it said.
