A CLEAN-UP operation took place at the weekend after about 1,500 litres of oil leaked into Aberdeen harbour.
The spill occurred on Friday afternoon when the Skandi Foula, an offshore supply vessel owned by Shell, was being refuelled at Torry Dock.
It is understood that around 500 litres of oil have been recovered, and work continued throughout the night into Saturday morning to clear the remainder.
A spokesman for Shell said the leak had been stopped.
It is the second reported oil spill the company has experienced in recent months.
In August the oil giant faced criticism after more than 200 tonnes of oil spilled into the North Sea from its Gannet Alpha platform, about two miles east of Aberdeen.
It was the worst oil spill in the region in more than a decade.
A spokesman for the oil company said: “No further fuel oil has leaked this weekend following the leak being stopped on Friday from the supply vessel Skandi Foula in Torry Dock.
“It is estimated that about 500 litres of fuel oil has been recovered from the water with an estimated remaining volume of up to 500 litres creating a light sheen on the water.
“There are no reports of any oil outside the Torry Dock in the River Dee.”
The Skandi Foula was moved to a dry dock in Aberdeen harbour on Saturday for inspection and repairs.
The relevant authorities have been informed, including liaison with the harbourmaster.
