Cook Inlet Oil Platform Service Ship in Peril
Thursday, 15 January 2009

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

            An oil platform supply vessel is in trouble in Cook Inlet. The 166-foot ship the Monarch sent out a mayday call at 5:51 this morning, saying it was taking on water. It was tied up to the Granite Point oil platform in upper Cook Inlet, about 45 miles southwest of Anchorage.

            Coast Guard reports vary, but the Monarch is either partially or fully submerged. The crew of seven was safely evacuated to the oil platform.

            The Nikiski-based tug Vigilant is on the scene, and the Homer-based cutter Hickory is en route. Coast Guard marine safety detachment personnel from Kenai is also on the way.

            A Coast Guard C-130 from Air Station Kodiak has been sent to observe the situation, and helicopters will follow when the weather permits.

            The Monarch is carrying about 35,000 gallons of diesel fuel, but no spill has been reported.

            With the recent cold, upper Cook Inlet has seen heavy icing, and the Coast Guard is reporting ice around the platform.

          In September, Senators Lisa Murkowski and Ted Stevens of Alaska won Senate approval of legislation that gave plaintiffs in the Exxon Valdez oil spill case the ability to increase retirement contributions and provide them tax relief. Kodiak Island Borough Mayor Jerome Selby, who is also an enrolled tax agent to practice before the IRS, offered tax advice during Monday's Chamber Luncheon for people who may have received money from the settlement.

Morning Jet to Kodiak Grounded After Icy Landing

            The morning Alaska Airlines jet into Kodiak Tuesday was grounded after the pilots maxed out the engines trying to get it stopped on the extremely icy runway. 

            Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Caroline Boren in Seattle said the flight crew found the runway was far slipperier than the airport had led them to expect.

            The airport is on the Kodiak Coast Guard base, and the Coast Guard fire department responded, but after determining there was no emergency, they returned to their station.

            Boren said the pilots were able to get the plane stopped by the time they reached the end of runway 36, which terminates on the bank of the Buskin River, by using maximum power on the engines' reverse thrusters.

            A passenger who asked not to be identified said the plane veered away from the centerline of the runway into the snow and slush, and he could see it showering the windows of the jet. He said when the plane came to a stop it was on the side of the runway in the snow. The pilots were able to dislodge the plane without help. The passenger praised the pilots for making the best landing they could, given the conditions.

            The plane, a 737-400 with 34 passengers and five crew aboard, taxied under its own power to the terminal, but Alaska Airlines decided to ground the plane to check for damage from using maximum reverse thrust. The return flight to Anchorage was cancelled, but another airplane has been put on the Kodiak route, and Boren says the schedule should be back to normal now.

            Maintenance workers were seen inside the intake of the engines during the afternoon. There's a possibility that while at full throttle and off the side of the runway, the engines ingested foreign objects.

            Boren said it might take up to several days to get mechanics to Kodiak and check out the aircraft. No injuries were reported.
