The worst case of oil spill that has taken place in Kalundborg Fjord was on September 19, 1998, when the big oil supply vessel Buna was to deliver oil to the oil tanker Nunki. By accident that tanker tore a hole which was 1.5 by 30 cm in the hull of the Buna. Now the thick oil fuel oil started to pour out into the inlet. The two environmental ships, the Gunnar Seidenfaden and the Marie Miljo were sent for. As soon as they arrived they began the clearing which took about 10 hours. The fast clearing was a result of the fact that the fuel oil does not lie on the surface of the water as a membrane; it stays toegether in portions. In total, 99000 litres oil gushed out in the inlet.

Nunki made rust bucket of the month in May 2000. She was found in execrable condition. See pictures at parismou site.

99 m3 seems an awful lot from a bunker barge with a small hole, but it is the only number we have.
