On Janaury 19, 2009, an oil sheen was discovered about the Genmar Progress by the vessel's personnel while the vessel was receiving cargo and conducting ballast discharge operations in the Galveston Lighterage Area off the coast of Texas. The vessel crew took prompt action pursuant to the vessel response plan, and the Company's subsidiary which operates the vessel promptly reported this incident to the USCG. The vessel proceeded to anchor offshore pursuant to USCG directive, where it was inspected by a Class Surveyor as required by the USCG. The USCG did not baord the vessel on scene, but subsequently USCG personnel boarded the vessel at Lake Charles on Janyary 29 and 30, 2009. Repairs were performed based on the recommendation of the Class Surveyor.

One across ship. See 2007-08-29. Sounds like cargo leaking into ballast tank.
