(CNS): The Utility Regulation and Competition Office (OfReg) has begun inquiries into the incident involving the Sea Elephant, an oil tanker that ran aground off the coast of Cayman Brac on 7 July. In a short release about the investigation, OfReg said there had been no reports of any fuel spills but the grounding had caused damage to the hull of the ship and an area of the sea bottom.

The investigation involves multiple government agencies, including the Department of Environment, the Cayman Islands Coast Guard, and the Port Authority of the Cayman Islands.

OfReg said that the situation continues to be monitored as a precautionary measure and it will provide updates as they become available.

    Will they fine the owner/operator like the last time sea bottom was damaged by a boat on Grand?

    And OfReg is repeating what we already know, why? Just to prove how out of touch they are? Based on the timeliness of this press release alone I hope that the CIG response is not shifting to ‘headed by Ofreg’; that would instill no confidence whatsoever.

    OfReg needs to pull their head in.
    Nothing to do with them.

    You know what is leaking? OfReg’s bank account.
