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.
