This is a weird one, location is in the middle of the northern North Sea The ship is a double hull motor tanker, so how does it leak from tug contact? Maybe it has forward bfo tank? Why would we do trials with a loaded tanker? The ships was not new, it was involved in a contact incident in 19960208 with the Emerald FSU.
