Oil spill off Mumbai coast
The Hindu : News / National : Oil spill off Mumbai coast
According to an ONGC statement here, the leak was detected in the Mumbai-Uran Trunk (MUT) pipeline at 8.45 a.m. The pipeline transports crude oil from the Mumbai High offshore fields. Production from the ONGC's Mumbai High field, the nation's biggest oilfield, and Bassein oilfield, was stopped immediately and the pipeline shut down. Output has since resumed and crude oil from the field is being transported ashore through a separate line.
