Singapore is working to clean up oil spills after a tanker accident

Like most residents’ weekend in Singapore’s expensive coastal enclave on the holiday island of Sentosa, Odhran Dodd’s started with the stench of oil fumes.

“Oh, you could smell it from seven o’clock this morning,” Dodd said Saturday in Sentosa Cove, a development favored by wealthy expats. “We certainly won’t get something as rotten as this.”

The beachfront where his four- and seven-year-olds often played was black on Saturday after an oil spill the afternoon before, when the Dutch-flagged dredger Vox Maxima struck and ruptured the bunker fuel ship Marine Honor at the Pasir Panjang Terminal. up the coast.
