A large amount of oil mixed with water was dumped near the Canadian island Terranova, in the Atlantic Ocean. The responsible for the accident was the platform Hibernia, which is commanded mainly by the American oil company Exxonmobil (having 33% of the offshore on its behalf).
"We are disappointed that the spill has happened, but we are working diligently to minimise the impacts on the environment," said Scott Sandlin, president of the Hibernia Management and Development Company (HMDC).
The HMDC said it is doing its best to remove the oil stain (which roughly amounts to 12,000 liters or 75 barrels of oil), causing the minimum possible environmental impact.
