Thais scratching their heads as mystery pipe appears on Chumpon beach

Most things that wash up on a beach are usually pretty easy to determine where they might have come from.

 

But something a little larger than the usual human detritus is causing a big headache down in the south of Thailand.

 

A week ago a huge near 200 meter long, 14 ton pipe washed ashore at Bang Bert beach between the provinces of Chumpon and Prajuab Khiri Khan.

 

The engineers believe it to be a pipe that moves oil from one ship to another.

 

But that is as far as they have got in determining its origin.

 

The worry is that the pipe contains oil that is beginning to seep out onto the beach and environmentalists want it removed before there is an ecological disaster.

 

Fortunately the Department of Energy and PTT have come to an agreement to do something and get the pipe removed, reported Thai Rath.

 

Pictures of engineers securing the pipe and its contents and diggers preparing for its removal were published yesterday a week after villagers noticed the pipe's arrival.

Illegal ship to ship transfer of oil for a rogue or blacklisted state, interrupted prematurely and the evidence discarded perhaps - no legit company would discard such an expensive and valuable asset.

If they continiue to dig they may as well find the ship and/or the headquarter....:coffee1:

yes I know how they do stuff too.  Anyone remember spillage off of pattaya a few years ago.

funny how that cleared up so quickly

 

but exactly what did they add to disperse it all so quick?

 

out of sight out of mind

From the big Jomtien beach project.  Ha ha, and I had thought that they managed to sink the pipe to the sea bed.  You could be right!

Geezer

Attach it to the raw sewerage outlet that directly flows onto the beach so then the  sewerage will flow at least another 200 meters

 

I thought that was what they had been doing (attempting)  for the last couple of years hence the 

porta-cabins and boarded up  bit near Walking street ????
