April 28, 2017:

Petrotrin, working together with the Ministry of Energy and other regulatory bodies, is continuing round the clock recovery and remediation efforts following last Sunday’s spill from its Pointe-a-Pierre refinery. Land and aerial surveys are also continuing to monitor the impact of the spill.

As we continue our Oiled Wildlife Management Plan, we wish to thank members of the public for their positive response to appeals to support the rehabilitation effort. Concerned stakeholders with information can continue to contact our 24-hour emergency response hotline - 658-SAFE (7233) as we work together to protect our wildlife.
