Oil Found on Beach After Samui Ferry Partially Submerged

Donsak, Surat Thani-

An oil stain was found on a beach in Donsak after a Samui ferry was partially submerged.

Our previous story:

A ferry was partially submerged and damaged after being hit by waves at a pier near Samui Island.

Now for the update:

The Surat Thani Public Relations Office told the Phuket Express that earlier this week they were notified that an oil stain was found in the sea and on Nang Kam Beach in Donsak after oil leaked from the Samui ferry which was partially submerged.

The ferry company was informed before their staffers were sent to clean up oil on the beach. They used ‘bioQ Oil Spill Cleanup’ which is a natural microorganism that can fasten the decomposition of petroleum oil. The natural microorganism does not cause a foul smell or has any toxin which affects humans and animals.

Relevant authorities are following up on this issue.
