Tonga volcano eruption caused oil spill in Peru

As we have revealed in AmericanPost.News, the tongan volcano erupted in days past, leaving “unusual tides” which have now caused a oil spill in Peru, specifically on the Bahía Blanca beach in Ventanilla, in the province of Callao.

It was revealed that the high tide recorded on the afternoon of January 15 altered the crude unloading process from the Mare Dorium ship to the La Pampilla refinery, a subsidiary of the Spanish multinational energy company Repsol, “as a result of which a limited spill was recorded due to the violence of the waves that occurred in the middle of the unloading task”.

Likewise, La Pampilla indicated in a statement that the refinery immediately activated its security protocols and its brigades managed to control the incident.

They revealed that at the moment they continue carrying out control and cleaning tasks of the oil spill on the coast in coordination with the local authorities.

After the oil spill that occurred over the weekend, you could see the remains of the fuel that reached the beach and for this reason, police officers had to remove more than 200 bathers. Meanwhile, the residents of the area indicated that the smell of oil could be perceived several streets away.
