Lomar Shipping says this task could take months after successfully completing the lightering of the ship.

Around
750
tonnes
of
oil
from
a
grounded
Lomar
Shipping
containership
have
been
extracted
and
the
focus
has
now
shifted
to
the
removal
of
containers
that
could
take
several
months.

The
London-based
company
said
two
helicopters
were
used
to
transport
oil,
in
tanks,
onto
a
nearby
barge,
in
a
process
lasting
15
days.

Lomar’s
2,194-teu
Kea
Trader
(built
2017)
grounded
off
New
Caledonia
in
the
Pacific
Ocean
a
month
ago.
