Power outage results in 2,200-litre oil spill near St. John’s, N.L. 

A power outage at a St John’s, Newfoundland Oil platform has caused roughly 2,200 litres of oil to spill into the ocean, according to a statement from Hibernian Management and Development Company.

According to the statement, the power outage activated a water sprinkler system which then caused the waste containment drain system to overflow, which then, in turn, sent oil into the ocean.
