The company involved in the Mauritius spill claims to have extracted the remaining crude oil from the stranded freighter

Japanese company Nagashiki Shipping, which was involved in the spillage of a cargo ship that ran aground off the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean last month, has assured that it has successfully extracted around 3,000 tons of crude oil that remained on the ship.

In a statement, the company confirmed the removal of the remaining oil to minimize the environmental impact of a spill that has already stained 1,000 tons of fuel in the area.

The incident occurred when the cargo ship carrying around 4,000 tons of crude oil ran aground off the island’s coast, known for its transparent waters and native flora and fauna.

Since then, several teams have worked against the clock to remove the remaining crude oil on board the ship before the ship was completely cracked and split in two, as warned by authorities.
