Oil spill off Penang Island
Friday, July 27, 2018, Penang, Malaysia

Up to six tonnes of diesel and hundreds of litres of engine oil floated from Penang seas towards Perak after a fishing vessel sank when it ran into the remains of a shipwreck 4km from Penang Island’s southern coast yesterday morning (26 July).

The spill floated in a southwesterly direction, threatening the coastal environment along several kilometres of northern Perak’s coast. By yesterday evening, the spill had not reached Perak shores and the state Marine Department had teams deployed along possible shorelines, ready to clean up.
