Was being towed to Seattle for maintenance when it ran aground in powerful storm New Year's Eve
ANCHORAGE, Alaska—A Shell oil-drilling ship that ran aground near a remote Alaska island is under tow again.
The Unified Command for the operation in Anchorage says the Kulluk is being towed at about 5 mph to shelter in Kodiak Island’s Kiliuda Bay.
Officials won’t estimate its arrival because of weather conditions—winds of about 18 mph and 15-foot ocean swells.
There’s a salvage crew of 10 people on board and one Royal Dutch Shell representative.
There’s no sign of any oil discharge from the vessel.
