Urgent clean up of oil spill in Rayong

The Royal Thai Navy is participating in the intervention. Naval vessels joined efforts to stop hundreds of barrels of oil from a pipeline leak in the Gulf of Thailand reaching the kingdom’s beaches.

Roughly 50,000 litres of crude oil spilled into the sea on Saturday about 20km off the coast of the eastern province of Rayong, operator PTT Global Chemical said yesterday.

The company, part of state-owned giant PTT, said 10 ships were involved in an urgent clean-up and it was confident of containing the leak.
