Worries over X-Press Pearl’s bunkers

The main perceived pollution threat following the sinking of the Singapore-flag container ship X-Press Pearl has been plastic pellets which had been part of the cargo and spilled into the sea, threatening fisheries and covering beaches.

However, concerns have also been raised over the 300 tonnes of fuel oil that were aboard when it arrived at Colombo’s anchorage. Reports have indicated that some of the fuel may have been burnt off during the fire. By mid-June there had been no reports of an oil spill.
