Several cubic meters of oil were spilled in the waters of  Aalbaek Bay Friday night during a bunkering operation involving the Danish - flagged tanker Aalborg and the Maltese - flagged container ship Koznitza, Danish Media reports.

The bunkering operation is reported to have been immediately halted once the spill was detected, and an oil boom deployed to contain the spill.

Local authorities are said to have inspected both vessels and surrounding waters following the spill.

Bunkering operations were resumed once authorities determined that the spill had been contained.

No environmental damage has been reported as a result of the spill.
