The oil spill from Iranian tanker Sanchi off the Chinese coast is only increasing in scope. Since the weekend, the spill from the tanker vessel has tripled in size and is now seen as the worst spill since the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, which resulted in several million liters of oil spilling into the ocean.
