Panaji:Directorate General of Shipping (DGS) has decided to form five-member committee to see the emptying of Naphtha from the ship tanker which has run aground off Goa coast since October 24.

State Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told reporters on Thursday that the five member committee would be constituted by DGS which will also include State Chief Secretary to oversee the operations to empty naphtha from the grounded ship.

“The current priority is to remove naphtha from the ship and DG Shipping has been briefed about it, who has taken the full responsibility about the operations,” the chief minister said.

Responding to a question, Sawant said that “till now, the date of emptying naphtha from the tanker has not been finalised.”

He said that the salvage firm from Singapore would be part of the entire operation of recovering this ship, which has run aground off Goa coast since last fortnight.

“All care would be taken to ensure that the naphtha from the ship is emptied safely. That is why it is taking time for the process,” Sawant said.

An unmanned vessel carrying 2,000 tonnes of naphtha,50 tonnes of heavy oil and 19 tonnes of diesel has beengrounded off the Goa coast since October 24.
