Oil Spill in Bocas del Toro

Environmental IssuesAn oil spill occurred in the early hours of yesterday at the mouth of Margarita creek in the district of Chiriqui Grande in Bocas del Toro. It is unknown the exact amount of oil that ended in the ravine and the sea. Unofficial data speaks of 100 barrels dumped a few meters from the premises of Petroterminal of Panama, SA (PTP). When we visited the site we saw a contingency crew from the company had controlled the spill. El Siglo tried to obtain a statement from the authorities of the AMP, but we were informed they were not authorized to make statements on the subject. (Siglo)
