Thailand Oil Spill Spreads, Tourists Evacuated

Posted by feww on August 1, 2013

Oil spill fourth largest in Thailand’s history:  Energy Ministry!!

At least 50,000 liters of crude oil leaked from a pipeline in the Gulf of Thailand off the coast of Rayong, southeast of the capital Bangkok over the weekend.

The oil spill has now reached the popular Thai tourist resort of Ao Prao Beach on Koh Samet Island, said pipeline operator PTT Global Chemical,  prompting evacuation of about a third of the tourists in the area.

Thai Oil Spill Reaches Tourist Island

PTT Global Chemical is part of Thailand’s biggest energy company, the state-controlled PTT Pcl.

PTT Exploration and Production, another subsidiary of the Thai oil monster, was blamed for “systemic shortcomings” after Australia’s worst offshore drilling disaster in 2009, when thousands of gallons of crude oil leaked into Timor Sea, covering tens of thousands of square kilometers, and reaching as far as the Indonesian islands.
