PATTAYA – December 7, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; the officers of Harbour Department and Pattaya city went to inspect Ta Waen beach – Koh Larn island, Chonburi province after they were informed that there was a lot of black oil floating dispersedly all over the sea. When the officers arrived at the scene they found a large amount of thick black crude oil floating in the sea and also some of the oil had been washed up on the beach. The officers were very concerned because the Thai and foreign tourists would not go swimming due to the health risks from the crude oil.
