High Court Allows Exxon Valdez to Be Scrapped

Two judges on India's Supreme Court allowed the ship to move to a shipyard in Gujarat, on the western coast of India.

Bloomberg and TradeWinds News reported July 30 that two judges on India's Supreme Court have allowed the ship once named the Exxon Valdez to be scrapped at a yard in Alang on the country's western coast.

Environmentalists had protested the planned scrapping earlier this year and had won an order from a regional pollution control board barring the ship's owner, Priya Blue Industries Pvt Ltd, from moving it to Alang.

The ship's current name is the Oriental Nicety. It was involved in one of the largest marine oil spills in history in Alaska's Prince William Sound in 1989.
