A collision between a K Line tanker and a tug pushing two barges closed the Houston Ship Channel on May 10, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. The 755-foot LPG tanker Genesis River collided with the tug Voyager near Bayport, Texas.

The tug was transporting two barges loaded with the gasoline blend stock Reformate. One barge has capsized and one is reported damaged. An estimated 25,000 barrels of gasoline blend stock were loaded on each barge. USCG said that an unknown amount of product has been released from the damaged barge, while media reports put the estimates at around 9,000 barrels.
