Brazilian Navy Refloats Fuel Tanker in Antarctic

Last week there was a lot of hoopla about the Brazilians possibly not adequately reporting the sinking of a fuel barge in December 2011.  The tanker has now been successfully refloated and will return to Brazil.  The state-controlled Petrobras helped salvage the fuel from near the recently destroyed Commandante Ferraz base and is transporting it back to Rio de Janeiro.  It has been reported that no environmental damage has occurred (i.e no leaking).
