Peruvian prosecutors open probe into oil spill blamed on Tonga Tsunami

Published

Peruvian Prosecutors have now launched an investigation into the oil company which experienced the spill

A probe has officially been opened seeking information into the circumstances of the oil spill incident which involved a Repsol oil ship.

Peru’s environmental minister has given the La Pampilla refinery two days to identify the critical points of the spill and to collect within 10 days the oil that affected kilometers of coastline.

A black mass of crude oil could be seen in the water extending some 3 km along the shoreline.

“This is worrying because it is very difficult to remedy,” the Minister of the Environment, Ruben Ramirez, said at a press conference.

Fines could reach up to $33 million if responsibility for environmental damage were proven, Ramirez said.

The cleanup continues.
