ExxonMobil has distanced its self from a recent discovery of a “thick greasy black” substance at the Kinston foreshore, that was reported by another online news outfit on Friday.
According to the oil giant, there was no operational upset related to ExxonMobil’s operations offshore Guyana.
The substance found in the Kingston seashore, Georgetown area is not a result of our operation, Exxon quipped.
“We can confirm there is no drilling operations at this time.”
Exxon via a statement noted that Pacora-1 well activities have been completed.
The EPA is aware and is investigating and will take necessary action, Exxon noted.
There are speculations that the substance might be from Trinidad where there has been an oil spill.
Also sometime last year, there were spreads of a thick black greasy susbstance found on the Kingston Seawall, around the popular Bandstand area all the way to the GPL power plant at Kingston.
The EPA did not offer any public statement on that incident when Daily News sought such.
But some checks by this news outfit revealed that there was a leak of oil of some sort by the GPL power plant, that incident allegedly went unreported.
