80% of Colon oil slick contained


Posted 13/04/2019

Some  80% of the oil spilled in an area near the port of Cristóbal, in Colón. Has been mopped up by personnel of the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP) said a statement issued Saturday, April 17.

The AMP is continuing with the evaluation in the area to find the origin of the spill, which caused a hydrocarbon slick on the Colonoast.

So far, the origin of the spill remains as "unknown", so personnel of the AMP intervened in the work of cleaning and containment.

If the person in charge is located, he/she must take care of the cleaning tasks, mitigate the effects on the environment and the expenses incurred said the AMP.

The slick was reported on Wednesday night, April 10.

To carry out the cleaning work, 250 feet of containment were used to reduce the impact on  the marine environment
