Puma Energy Explains Oil Spill

Puma Energy says they are cleaning up an oil spill near the Napa Napa refinery.

Puma Energy Country Manager, Jim Collings, has explained that the spill is minor, and assures the public that there is no immediate danger.

Collings held a press conference on Thursday April 27, explaining what the company is doing.

Collings called it a minor spill, saying it was only a fraction of what is handled by the company.

The company argues that it safely handles over a 100,000 cubes of oil a month. The oil, Puma says, is safely stored in drums.

The company says this spill is the first of its kind in the country and lessons have been learnt.

Puma Energy also insists that the oil spill poses no threat on the livelihood of local fishing villagers, and the marine life in the area. But, some residents have stopped buying fish at local markets in the city, making the full effects of this oil spill, one that realistically, cannot be determined yet.
