The Whiddy Island disaster, also known as the Betelgeuse incident, occurred on 8 January 1979, around 1:00 am, when the oil tanker Betelgeuse exploded in Bantry Bay, at the offshore jetty for the oil terminal at Whiddy Island, Ireland. The explosion was attributed to the failure of the ship's structure during an operation to discharge its cargo of oil. The tanker was owned by Total S.A., and the oil terminal was owned and operated by Gulf Oil.

  • L'incidente della Betelgeuse, noto anche come il disastro di Whiddy Island, avvenne l'8 gennaio 1979, verso l'una del mattino, quando la petroliera Betelgeuse, ancorata al terminal petrolifero di Whiddy Island, West Cork, Irlanda, esplose durante le operazioni di scarico. La nave apparteneva alla Total S.A., mentre il terminal era di proprietà della Gulf Oil. L'esplosione e il conseguente incendio portarono alla morte di 50 persone (42 francesi, 7 irlandesi e 1 inglese). Solo 27 corpi furono ritrovati. Un sommozzatore olandese morì durante le operazioni di recupero.
