OriginsEdit

The Amoco Cadiz experienced terrible weather when in the English Channel and had lost response to the ship’s rudder. Attempts to get a tug line to land all failed. By the time all of the crew had been evacuated, the hull had sheared open and was taking on water. On March 16, 1978, the oil tanker sank into the ocean with all its crude still onboard. The following oil spill was the largest one at its time. All of its contents were dumped out into the sea, with the effects stretching for miles. The marine life death toll was massive, with many bottom dwellers, fish and birds victims. However, this disaster has been one of the most studied oil spills to ever take place.

EffectsEdit

The debris is from the hull itself, where the ship was gashed and started taking on water. When it touches water, it instantly turns to crude oil. However, it also kills any marine life in it and is anywhere from unpleasant to deadly for other creatures.

TriviaEdit

  • The artifact was used in conjunction with Red Adair’s Hardhat to clean up an incident during Spring Cleaning when the Original Conch Shell activated. The debris turned all the water filling the aisles into crude, instantly killing all marine life in it and stopping the flow of water from the conch.
