Delayed first by environmentalists and then by the environment itself, the former Exxon Valdez left San Diego Bay six hours later than planned Wednesday, returning to service after 14 months of repairs with a new name, a new route and yet another encounter with Greenpeace under its belt. In an elaborate pre-dawn send-off, members of the environmental activist group scaled the side of the tanker, rechristened the Exxon Mediterranean, and unfurled a banner that read "Sane Energy: When?"

After nearly a year in dry dock in San Diego Bay, the Exxon tanker involved in the nation's worst oil spill returned to water Friday night after undergoing multimillion-dollar repairs. Towed by four tug boats, the Exxon Mediterranean, formerly the Exxon Valdez, was floated out of its dry dock for the first time and moved into the bay.

Exxon Shipping Co. officials announced Friday that the Exxon Valdez, the tanker that caused the worst oil spill in the nation's history, will return to service in mid-August with a new name and a new route outside U.S. waters. The 987-foot tanker, rechristened the Exxon Mediterranean, has not been retrofitted with a double bottom, which the U.S. Coast Guard said would have greatly lessened the impact of the March, 1989, spill.
