On October 8, 1987, the Cabo Pilar grounded in the Magellan Strait,
while en-route from Clarencia-Gregorio to San Vincente, Chile.
Approximately 40,900 bbs of ENAP crude
was spilled into the Strait off Punta Davis.
Dispersants and manual methods were used in clean up operations.
The Cabo Pilar was refloated on November 3,
and continued on its voyage.
