Cargo Ship Leaking Fuel Oil Off of Alaska
By Yereth Rosen
ANCHORAGE (Reuters) - Fuel oil was pouring out of a Malaysian-flagged cargo vessel that grounded off an Aleutian island and split into two nearly equal pieces, threatening a sensitive area of marine habitat, officials said on Thursday.
The ship, which lost power and began drifting early Tuesday morning in the stormy Bering Sea, appeared to be losing much of the nearly 500,000 gallons of heavy bunker fuel oil it was carrying, officials said.
The grounding site is offshore from Unalaska Island, about 800 miles southwest of Anchorage. The site is managed by the sprawling Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, although it is technically not part of the refuge. The area is important to sea birds and marine mammals, said Greg Siekaniec, refuge manager.
