Petrotrin refers oil leak to TTPS

Petrotrin has called in the police to investigate an oil leak in Fyzabad.
In a statement the company says on Thursday during routine checks in the field, a production operator noticed that five wellhead valves on an oil well located in Sewlal Trace, Fyzabad were removed and around one barrel of crude oil had leaked into the area.
Petrotrin officials immediately ensured that the valves were closed to prevent more oil from leaking and notified the police. The EMA, as well as the Ministry of Energy, were also notified.
