Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board investigators boarded MSC Danit on Saturday in the Port of Long Beach, according to a release from the agency.
In stormy weather on January 25, the ship dragged its anchor in close proximity to the pipeline which was the source of a major oil spill off Orange County this month that forced the closure of beaches and sullied wetlands. The Coast Guard has designated MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company SA, operator of the vessel, and Dordellas Finance Corp., its owner, as "parties in interest" to the investigation. An email to Mediterranean Shipping sent Saturday for comment wasn’t returned.
