As of Thursday, July 2, THE oil spill clean-up at the Equinor South Riding Point facility in East Grand Bahama seems to have slowed down over the past several months, with some areas of the forest still covered with oil.
It is believed the COVID pandemic which forced the shutdown of the economy in late March could have been the reason for the suspension of the clean-up operations by Equinor officials. When contacted this week, an official spokesman for the company said Equinor remains committed to its clean-up operations in East End. The work has been performed in close cooperation with the Bahamian government and related agencies.
The Tribune understands environmental activists at Save the Bays and Waterkeepers Bahamas were scheduled to visit the site yesterday to see for themselves the condition of the surrounding environment and areas that were affected. Last September, 55, barrels 2. A large area of the nearby forest, north of the terminal, was ificantly affected.
A total of 1. It has been recently reported that close to 60, barrels of oil and water have been recovered. In a recent video, Fred Smith of Save the Bays is seen in the affected forest area, expressing concern over remnants of oil still left there. Some 27 wells were drilled in the area for testing of groundwater.
As of Januarythe company reported there had been no of contamination of groundwater as a result of testing conducted by independent contractors and third-party laboratories. So continuing the clean up of the very serious environmental damage caused by Equinor's failed oil storage tanks was not considered an essential business operation and was shut-down by Minnis for Covid? I suspect nothing much was being done by Equinor's staff and contractors even before Covid came along.
Like so many other important things in our country, this oil spill clean up project will never be properly completed and will eventually be swept under the rug once the right people have been rewarded by Equinor to turn a blind eye. Password Forgot? Confirm password.
