Norwegian oil and gas company Equinor is progressing oil spill recovery at the South Riding Point terminal in the Bahamas after the impact of Hurricane Dorian.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, Equinor said earlier this week it would clean up the oil spills from its South Riding Point oil terminal, spilled due to damage caused by the hurricane.
In an update on Wednesday, Equinor said that there was no observed leakage of oil to the sea from the terminal.
Equinor informed on Thursday that an onshore team had started to recover oil and move it into tank storage.
“A response team continues to assess the damage and plan the recovery work. Initial recovery assets have been deployed and additional machinery and equipment is being added,” the Norwegian company said.
Equinor also noted that recovery was expected to be significantly stepped up over the coming days in close dialogue with local authorities.
It is still Equinor’s assessment that no oil is leaking from the terminal. An area with suspected oil spill in open water has now been confirmed to be a patch of seaweed.
Another area with potential product 70-80 kilometers north east of the terminal on the other side of the island has been observed from air and results are being processed. Currently, there are no indications that the terminal is the source for this.
