In November 1997 an unknown quantity of light crude oil was spilled at Port Stanvac. A 3mm crack in the hull of the Malaysian charter vessel MT Bunga Kertas was found folowing the discovery of a leak before unloading began. The ship had been 3km offshore when the leak was discovered. It was then taken 8km offshore where wind and tide helped disperse the oil. Mobil said that patches of oil were identified within a 400m radius of the ship.
