At the press conference this afternoon, MNZ Salvage Unit Manager Bruce Anderson confirmed that as at 3pm today, a total of 645 tonnes of oil had been removed from the port number 5 tank. This tank originally held 772 tonnes. Note this figure is the amount pumped off in total since pumping operations began. The amount takes some technical calculation to confirm and it is intended this will be updated daily.
