Guam - The Port Authority of Guam announces a fuel leak that occurred at 11:20am Friday at the F1 Fuel Pier has been contained. According to Port Harbor Master Felix Pangelinan, the leak occurred when the MT Gas Shuriken was off loading LPG gas at the pier. He states, "According to the Tristar pier operator, the gas tanker was discharging LPG gas through a hose into the F1 fuel line when the 6 inch hose ruptured. Immediately after the rupture, the operator on the dock hit the emergency stop button which stopped the discharge and as a result minimal product was released into the air."

The Port Harbor Master Office, Port Police, Guam Fire Department and U.S. Coast Guard all responded to the scene. The air quality test samples came back negative around 2:10 pm. The Coast Guard will continue their investigation into the incident, and Tristar will continue to monitor air quality in the area.
