Oil Leak 263 MCA Comments – part 40

This is a really important one:

The MCA regard STS operations at Nigg Oil Terminal as having “CONSIDERABLY LESS RISK than at anchor, both as regards the probability of an incised and the consequence from oil spills.” This has been Cromarty Rising’s argument all through this campaign – some of you disagree with that and would like to see no oil transfers in the Cromarty Firth. If they need to take place then lets do them where the risk is least.
