Oil spill clean-up underway off Adriatic coast


(ANSA) – Pescara, January 22 – Clean-up operations were
underway Tuesday following an oil spill off Italy's Adriatic
coast near the border between the regions of Abruzzo and Molise.
The spill, estimated at 1,000 litres, was reported Monday
night by an oil tanker in the Rospo Mare oil field located
roughly 19 kilometers from the port of Termoli.
Italian energy companies Edison and Eni, which operate the
field, subsequently suspended production and activated emergency
and anti-pollution procedures in conjunction with the competent
authorities to contain and clean up the spill.
On Tuesday morning coast guard divers also inspected the
oil platform to try to identify the source of the spill.
The Rospo Mare oil field has been in production since 1982
and has extracted 92 million barrels of crude.
