WIOC Says Fuel Leak Under Control

The West Indies Oil Company is reiterating that the jet fuel leak never made it onto private properties.

According to WIOC, The site of the leak was identified in the vicinity of Wenty’s Apartments and Toy Toy Restaurant in upper Fort Road.

It said in news release that the ruptured line has since been repaired by our maintenance and terminal staff, who undertook the requisite emergency procedures to mitigate the impact from the leak. The leak site remains excavated as we are currently working with other agencies to complete the operation and fully restore the roadway. We expect this to be completed by close of business on Wednesday May 1, 2019.

The drains around the leak site continue to be thoroughly flushed to remove any residue of the fuel. Motorists and residents are being urged to continue avoiding the area due to the ongoing operations.
