Beijing: China has launched a probe after an oil spill was detected in Bohai Sea off its northern coast.

It was discovered Friday near an oil field in Liaodong Bay by the China National Offshore Oil Corp., Xinhua reported.

The company said that an underwater pipe, damaged by the anchors of ships, has resulted in the spill.

The State Oceanic Administration (SOA) has launched a probe to assess any possible damage to the maritime environment.

The accident comes after another oil spill wreaked havoc in Bohai Bay in June, affecting tourism and aquatic farming.

The Bohai Sea is the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea and comprises Laizhou Bay, Liaodong Bay and Bohai Bay. (IANS)
