Although insurance might cover a portion of environmental damage, the Indonesian authorities stated that, in their opinion, the captain has committed a crime and can be sentenced to prison in case convicted. "The insurance company may be willing to pay for environmental damage, but it does not remove the criminal aspect of the matter," said power.

The company described the duty of the master during the accident as "one of the world's leading captains of the expedition" and said that he has many years of experience.
