The Texas City Y Oil Spill occurred on March 22, 2014, in Galveston Bay in the vicinity of the Houston Ship Channel near Texas City, Texas, when the inbound bulk carrier M/V SUMMER WIND collided with the oil tank-barge KIRBY 27706. At the time of the collision, the M/V MISS SUSAN was towing the oil tank-barges KIRBY 27705 and KIRBY 27706. As a result of the collision, the #2 starboard tank of KIRBY 27706 was punctured discharging approximately 168,000 gallons (4,000 barrels) of intermediate fuel oil (IFO-380) into Galveston Bay which subsequently entered the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The impacts of the spill were evaluated through the natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) process. Specifically, impacts to shoreline habitats, birds, bottlenose dolphins, and recreational were evaluated. Federal and state trustees worked cooperatively with Kirby Inland Marine, LP, the responsible party, to assess the injuries to natural resources through the NRDA process.
