EXPLOSION ON NP COMPOUND IN SEA LOTS CAUSE STANDSTILL

Operations at National Petroleum in Sea Lots are reportedly on hold following an explosion…

The explosion is said to have occurred just after 7 o clock this morning on NP compound…

Branch President of the Oilfield Workers Trade Union, Mary Lawrence, says a valve from one of the tanks blew, resulting in the leakage of a dangerous gas…

The company, we are told, ordered all workers to evacuate the building until the leak had been fixed.

But Ms. Lawrence says workers refused  to return to work until further checks were made.

Meantime, scores of truck and lorry men reportedly waited at NP main storage terminal this morning without being told about the situation or anything at all….

One driver said it was irresponsible on the part of NP not to inform them of what was happening.
