This video was recorded at 7 am this morning (6th May 2020). The oil appears to have been released during the night. As you can see in the video, it stretches for miles westward. It appears that this spilled oil is emanating from Capital Signal and was discharged from vessels that are being serviced.
International oil companies have a duty to ensure service companies act responsibly.
The Gulf of Paria is our marine food basket where 70% of our fish are caught. Our fishery is already plagued with a wide range of problems, and oil spills are just one of them.
Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS) are calling on the Ministry of Energy to respond with a sense of urgency, investigate and charge these polluters according to our Law.
