1 OIL SPILL DISASTER FROM SUNKEN SHIP AT PARADEEP DR. D. K. BEHERA N. R. SAHOO STATE POLLUTION CONTROL BOARD OCTOBER-2009

2 OUT LINE  THE SINKING OF MV BLACK ROSE  ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT  INITIAL RESPONSE  POTENTIAL RISK

3 UNLUCKY MV BLACK ROSE  NAME : MV BLACK ROSE  LENGTH : 187.7m  BREADTH : 28.4m  DRAFT-FORWARD : 7.53m  AFT : 8.60m

4 THE INCIDENT  The ship sank on 09/09/09, 17:40hrs  5 km from Paradeep port  26 crew members rescued except the chief engineer

5 THE SUNKEN BLACK ROSE A CLOSER VIEW

6 THE SHIP CONTAINED  Iron ore : ton  Furnace oil : 924 ton  Diesel oil : 48 ton  Lubricating oil : Unknown

7 PROPERTY OF DIESEL  Kinematic viscosity : cSt, at 40deg  Flash point : 66 deg Celsius (Pensky)  Density : kg per cum, at 40 deg  PAH : 11% by mass (max)

8 PROPERTY OF FURNACE OIL  Kinematic viscosity : 370 cSt, at 50deg  Flash point : 66deg (Pensky)  Density : 990 kg per cum, at 15deg  Sulphur : 4.5%

9 PROPERTY OF LUBRICANTS  Kinematic viscosity : cSt at 40deg  Flash point deg

10 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT  Destroys the marine ecology  On reaching shore contaminates the soil  Damages shoreline vegetation  Affects mangrove forest  Threatens fishery and marine wildlife

11 SPCB’s INITIAL RESPONSE  10 th September : Got the message from ICG about sinking of ship  10 th September : Board directed PPT to take appropriate measure to prevent spill  14 th September : No spill observed  14 th September : Coordinated with PPT and ICG  22 nd September : Spilled oil observed on shore  22 nd September : MoEF, MoD, MoS and CPCB sensitised

12 OIL FOAMS COMING TO THE SHORE

13 OIL ON THE SHORE, 22-SEP

14 A THICK PIECE OF SLICK

15 OIL SLICK IN LOW LYING AREA

16 OIL SLICK AT 5km FROM PORT

17 OIL SPILL AFFECTED STRECH

18 FLOATING OIL IN THE SEA

19 SAE WATER SAMPLING

20 SAMPLING OF BEACH SAND

21 SAMPLE ANALYSIS INDICATED  Oil and grease in the sea water near the shore range between 10 to 250 mg/l  Oil and grease in the beach sand range between 30 to 60 g/kg

22 SPCB DIRCTED PPT TO …  To take action for plugging the leak  To evacuate oil from the sunken ship  To clean-up the contaminated shore  To contain the oil close to the sunken ship

23 ACTION TAKEN BY PPT  Cleaned up the shore by scrapping  Deployed booms to contain the oil spill  Engaged agency to plug the leakage points with wooden plugs till oil is evacuated  Engaged agency to evacuate stored oil on board

24 THE SHORE AFTER SCRAPING

25 BOOM READY FOR DEPLOYMENT

26 BOOMS AROUND THE SLICK

27 BOOMS AROUND THE SPILL AREA

28 OBSERVATION ON 6 TH OCTOBER

29 DEPOSITED OIL AFTER 3 WEEKS

30 OIL SLICK ON 6-OCT

31 POTENTIAL RISK  Oil slick reaching shore during land-ward wind  Sea-ward moving slick may endanger movement of olive ridley turtles  Bhitarkanika and Gahirmatha may be affected in case of larger spill  Contamination of creek water  Larger spill may occur during evacuation, if adequate precaution is not taken  Large scale fish kill

32 ACTION IMPLEMENTED  Pipelines were plugged by divers  The furnace oil and diesel oil extracted with steam injection  The storage tanks were cleaned with diesel oil  Collected oil sold to authorised waste oil reprocessors  Shore has been cleaned

33 COORDINATED EFFORT OF  Media  Env. Activists  Regulators  Paradeep Port Authorities  Indian Coast Guard  District Administration
