- MV Runner 4 Oil Spill in Compact Ice off the Coast of Estonia
The Runner 4 vessel oil spill occurred in the ice-covered Gulf of Finland off the coast of Estonia. The oil spill was caused by the sinking of the Dominican-registered cargo ship Runner 4 on March 5, 2006, after collision with the Malta-registered cargo ship Svjatoi Apostol Andrey. This oil spill was very difficult to respond to and to recover oil due to severe ice conditions. 18,000 liters of heavy & light fuel was spilled into broken ice conditions.
