The Container ship, which got stuck on the New Zealand offshore reef and was in danger of breaking apart.
It initially leaked 350 tonnes of oil, killing more than 1,000 sea birds.
Environmentalists had warned of disaster if all 1,700 tonnes of oil and 200 tonnes of diesel originally held on board spilled from the vessel.
The ship’s Philippine captain and second officer have been charged over the incident.
