International News: Oil spill in Trinidad and Tobago spreads to Grenada, could impact Venezuela

Posted: Friday, February 16, 2024. 1:32 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Eight days after Trinidad and Tobago’s Coast Guard first spotted the oil from a capsized vessel whose owner and origin have not been confirmed, portions of the stain have moved about 144 km (89 miles) into the Caribbean Sea at a rate of 14 km per hour.

According to Reuters, the oil spill has now entered Grenada’s territorial waters.

Officials in Trinidad and Tobago have contacted authorities in Grenada, Panama, Aruba and Guyana as part of an investigation about the vessel’s origin, intended destination and ownership, and an accompanying tugboat.

Preliminary investigation suggests that the ship departed Panama bound for Guyana.

Meanwhile, Venezuela continues to monitor the spill.

Authorities in Trinidad say that the overturned vessel continues to leak fuel, but the situation is now under control with a 40-feet (12 m) perimeter supported by booms around the wreckage.
