Petrotrin responds to oil spill.

petrotrinPetrotrin has responded to reports received of oil deposits at Mosquito Creek and beaches in La Brea, Vessigny, Clifton Hill/ Guapo, and Cedros.

The company, in a statement issued, says consistent with their response in relation to a similar report received yesterday involving oil at Fullerton Beach, Cedros, a team of officials responded immediately and observed oil sheens and patches of oil on the sand at those locations.

Petrotrin also assures that the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries (MEEI), the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management were notified and Company officials conducted two helicopter fly-overs of the south-western shoreline and the Gulf of Paria, however no discernible sources of oil or leaks were observed.

Petrotrin says it has established Incident Command Teams and they are conducting a thorough examination of their facilities, particularly offshore and their submarine infrastructure to determine if their installations are in any way connected to the oil sightings.
