Another oil spill has reportedly occurred at the South Oropouche River, according to the area’s MP Dave Tancoo.
In a media release sent this afternoon, he said that he was provided information that the spill occurred meters away from last month’s spill.
Heritage Petroleum took responsibility for the November event and Mr Tancoo claims the company’s aged infrastructure is what led to today’s spill.
However, calls to the company for a response have gone unanswered.
MP Tancoo is demanding that Heritage meets with all stakeholders in Oropouche West on the matter.
