Description

On the night of 28 July 2013, an oil pipeline leak approximately 35 kilometers from the island Khao Laem Ya Mu Ko Samet National Park resulted in 50,000 litres of oil flowing into a huge slick in coastal waters in the Gulf of Thailand. Workers from PTT Global Chemical, Thai Navy soldiers, and volunteers in white bio-hazard or Hazmat suits worked round the clock in the crude oil clean up operation using pumps, holding tanks, containing it with booms, even mopping with absorbent pads. The spill occurred when a seabed pipeline hose malfunctioned while transferring the oil to a tanker ship.

Worst hit was the popular tourist resort beach known as Ao Prao Bay or Coconut Bay renowned for its beaches and white silky sand, surrounded by tropical coral reefs and crystal clear sea. Ko Samet Island is located in the Gulf of Thailand off the coastline of the Thai province of Rayong, approximately 220 kilometres southeast of Bangkok.

Location: Ko Samet National Park, Thailand
