BANGKOK (AP) — Streaks of crude oil marred the beach on a popular tourist island in Thailand's eastern sea despite attempts to clean up a spill from a leaking pipeline, officials said

Tourists were warned to stay away as black waves left inky globs on Samet Island's once-serene white beaches Monday while hundreds of workers in white jumpsuits labored to scrape the sand clean and remove oil from the water.

Oily streaks about 300 meters (1,000 feet) wide marred the shore of Prao Bay on the island that is one of the most popular beach destinations for Thai and foreign tourists in the Gulf of Thailand, Rayong Deputy Gov. Supeepat Chongpanish said.

Sounds like the leak developed as a tanker was pumping oil through the pipeline.. If just 50 tons, then perhaps they can recover in a few months.
