Collection: Sea Empress Oil Spill in Wales (Photos & Videos)

GP0ALBAG
The Sea Empress was a single-hull oil tanker that ran aground near the southwest coast of Wales in February 1996. The ensuing oil spill affected a considerable area of nearby coastline. Pembrokeshire was suffering for over a year after the incident. Most of the birds in the area died and 200 kilometres of coastline were covered in crude oil. Over the first few days of the disaster an estimated 73,000 tonnes out of the ship's 130,000 tonne cargo of North Sea crude oil spilt onto the surrounding coast, causing a great deal of environmental and aesthetic damage to the coastline and its marine life and wildlife in an area which lies within the protection of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
