Northern Quebec Fuel Spill
October 8, 2015 The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) was notified late October 7 and immediately responded to a fuel spill near the community of Salluit, West of Ungava Bay, in Northern Québec. The M/T Sarah Desgagnés was transferring fuel to the community of Salluit in preparation for the winter months ahead. Strong winds and snow required the transfer be stopped for safety reasons. Following the standard emergency disconnect process, the fuel line was severed by the vessel's propeller. At that time, the fuel transfer had already stopped. Current estimates are around 3,000 litres of fuel spilled.
