Authorities react to mock fuel leak

Coast guard vessels and aircraft yesterday successfully conducted an exercise simulating the response to a possible fuel leak off the Bay of Elefsina under the supervision of the European Marine Safety Agency.

The exercise was undertaken as part of a bid to protect the Greek seas and coastline ahead of the construction of the Burgas-Alexandroupolis oil pipeline. “We want to be completely ready when the pipeline starts operating,” said Merchant Marine Minister Giorgos Voulgarakis. He said the exercise was an to “test our reflexes and improve our operational ability.”
