A bulk carrier that collided with an LNG tanker on 30 August off Gibraltar has started leaking fuel oil. Gibraltar Government said “The hull of the bulk carrier OS 35 broke, but the vessel has not separated into two parts. There has been a substance leak from the vessel as a result of the movement arising from its break. Initial investigations indicate that this is lube oil.Current evidence suggests the fuel on board is well contained and it is hoped that offloading has begun.”The collision happened as the vessel OS 35, loaded with steel bars and carrying over 400 tonnes of fuel, was moving to exit the bay. The Marshall Islands-flagged ADAM LNG arrived in Gibraltar after unloading in Malta. It remains at anchor near the place where the collision took place. Its 24-strong crew was evacuated.The collision forced the closure of the Gibraltar port for four hours. It was later fully reopened.
