Re: It's Not Just Containers.....

Dumping in the ocean is an easy, affordable way out. The Ublureac, Esso drill supply vessel in the Beaufort, sank ,mainly due to untrained crew, and raised at a cost of several million. Taken into Tuk, she waited for the paper work to come from Ottawa , a deep water dumping permit, and Bob's yer uncle. One of my duties during this debacle was wiping fuel oil from passing ice with absorbent rags.Became a bit jaded re industry response to environmental stuff and then went to Exxon on the Valdez adventure.
