On March 15, the 1996 built 37,500 dwt tanker NCC Jubail crashed while departing from its berth in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The tanker collided with a mooring dolphin due to a technical failure: the controllable pitch propeller plant when put in Ahead mode instead went full astern. Two tanks were ruptured well above the waterline. This resulted in 500 l of cylinder oil being spilled. The clean up operations begain immediately and was completed on march 17th.

This is really a chemical/oil tanker with 52 tanks, so we dont know if the lube oil spilled was cargo or from an ER tank. Ship is DH so guessing ER.
