Major Oil Company Cleans-up Its Chain of Fueling Stations

Port of Spain, Trinidad: National Petroleum, one of the most diversified petroleum companies in the Caribbean, operates its own chain of fueling stations. This month, they began a new environmental program designed to reduce its downstream pollution from the grease, oil and fuel deposits left by the many cars and trucks that visit their stations.

A new product was used called DE-GREASE-IT, a fuel and oil spill eliminator, which completely breaks down any type of hydrocarbon into an environmentally safe form of dirt. “It is so effective,” quotes Christian De Freitas, Business Development Executive for Trinidad Tank & Fuel Service, who did the job “that the run off even cleans any pre-existing toxic soil it comes into contact with as it makes its way through the ground and sewer systems.”

Cleaning boats with DE-OIL-IT

Petrotrin workers using the de-oil-it product on pirogues at Point Sable Beach in La Brea, yesterday.

Fishermen along the south-western peninsula whose boats were affected by Petrotrin’s 11 oil spills were able to clean their vessels for the first time yesterday using a non-toxic product called “de-oil-it” sourced from the United States. On Friday, brothers Andrew and John Collier, owners of Tank Fuel Services Ltd, along with regional lead of the “de-oil-it” product David Bovell gave president of the La Brea Fishing Association Alvin La Borde and a small group of fishermen a demonstration of the product being used for oil spill clean-up in the presence of Petrotrin’s officials.

The product when applied on areas covered with oil, Bovell said, has the ability to disarm the toxic molecules, leaving surfaces thoroughly clean. The product, they said, apart from being non-toxic to humans, animals and the environment, was also water-based and biodegradable making it an ideal product for oil spill clean-up.  Read more

Making the suggestion was Trinidad Tank & Fuel Services Limited (TT&FSL), representative David Bovell.

In an interview at the company’s Marabella offices on Tuesday, said while the company appreciated the challenges facing the Ministry of Energy and state owned oil company, Petrotrin in cleaning up the beaches and other marine areas, Bovell said the country may not possess a ‘response formula’ with the appropriate dispersants to deal with significant oil spills recently experienced.

“We accept that there are certain challenges that the Ministry has, recently a national Trinidad oil spill committee was appointed, and it cuts across just about all the sectors of society and responding companies,’ he said. Read more
