Viva Energy Statement

“Viva Energy confirms that marine fuel oil leaked from an onshore pipeline at its Gore Bay Terminal during barge refuelling operations yesterday, with a small quantity of the fuel oil entering the water.

Terminal staff responded immediately and the leak was fully contained with protective booms.

Most of the clean-up has already occurred, although terminal employees will continue to work throughout the day.

The Port Authority of New South Wales, the EPA and emergency services were notified at the time and were satisfied with Viva Energy's rapid response.

Viva Energy will fully investigate this incident."
