The Impact Of An Oil Spill in Turbulent Waters: The Braer

AuthorMaritime and Coastguard Agency
On 5 January 1993 the 'Braer' oil tanker ran aground on Garths Ness in South Shetland in some of the worst weather conditions ever recorded there. Over a period of up to 12 days the entire cargo, 84,700 tons of light Gulfaks crude oil, was discharged at an unknown rate into the turbulent sea. It has been estimated that up to 1500 tons of heavy bunker oil was also lost. All oil spill incidents are unique, but the singular nature of this oil spill in Shetland was the product of an unparalleled combination of circumstances. In this volume, a team of international experts examine all aspects of this spill - from the detail of the incident itself to its environmental impact on the area.
