SINGAPORE: The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said good progress has been made in containing and cleaning up the oil spillage resulting from Wednesday's collision between Hong Kong-flagged chemical tanker Lime Galaxy and the China-flagged container ship Feihe at about 2.7km south of Jurong Island.

It said there has been no further spillage of bunker fuel from Feihe.

However as a precautionary measure, oil booms and an oil spill response craft have been deployed around the vessel.

In total, 10 craft from MPA and oil spill response companies have been deployed as part of the containment and clean up efforts.  - CNA/ac
