TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- Iranian teams have cleaned up an oil slick near field in the northern region of the Persian Gulf that had extended over a six-square-km (2.3 square mile) area, an Iranian maritime official said on Saturday.
The cause of the spill, which occurred on Wednesday, was being investigated, the director general of ports and maritime in Iran’s Bushehr Province, Siavash Arjomandzadeh, told the official IRNA news agency. The cleanup took place near the Abuzar field, Iran’s main production area in the Persian Gulf.
