AROUND 1,500 litres of oil leaked from an offshore supply vessel in Aberdeen harbour yesterday.

The spill occurred when the Skandi Foula, owned by Shell, was being refuelled at Torry dock.

A clean-up operation was under way last night and it is understood around 500 litres of oil were recovered.

A spokesman for Shell said the leak had been stopped.

It is the second reported oil spill the company has experienced in as many months.

It was the worst oil spill in the region in more than a decade. read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
