Two US experts and a local one in
oil spill dispersion have been added
to the recently-formed National
Environmental Assessment Task
Force which is dealing with the
December oil spill at La Brea, Envi-
ronment and Water Resources Min-
ister Ganga Singh said yesterday.
The spill occurred in several parts
of the area from December 17 to 26,
necessitating an emergency response
to protect human health and the envi-
It was reported that 2,000 barrels
of oil were recovered as a result of
State-owned Petrotrin was found
to be in breach of the Environmental
Management Act and was fined $20
million which will be used towards
assessment, remediation and rehabil-
itation of the affected areas.
The task force was subsequently
launched to assess the impact and
current state of the environment as
a result of the spill, with emphasis
on potential effects in the Gulf of Paria
As well as making recommenda-
tions on the situation the force s 17-
point mandate includes establishing
a monitoring programme and identi-
fying studies needed to rehabilitate
the affected areas.
The ten-member force, headed by
Dr Allan Bachan, head of the Envi-
ronmental Management Authority,
received instruments of appointment
In a statement to the Senate yes-
terday, Singh said three other experts
would supplement the team.
They include a local representative
with expertise in offshore transport
and fate of oil/oil spill dispersion mod-
elling, as well as an international rep-
resentative with expertise in restora-
tion and rehabilitation activities related
to oil spills.
The latter person will come from
the US Fish and Wildlife Agency.
The third expert will be an inter-
national representative with expertise
in oilfield safety and management to
assist with the development of guide-
lines for risk mitigation which will
enhance the environmental regulatory
That person will come from
the US Environmental Protection
Singh said the force s first
report was expected in approx-
imately three months.
He added: "Government is very
cognisant of the fact that spilled
oil poses serious threats to the
aquatic environment and affects
surface resources and a wide
range of sub-surface organisms
that are linked in a complex food
chain that includes human food
"Spilled oil and certain clean-
up operations can cause harm to
different types of marine habitats
in different ways.
"For example, tidal flats usually
containing rich plant, animal and
bird communities can be adverse-
ly affected by the deposited oil
which may seep into the muddy
bottom of the flats, creating
potentially harmful effects on the
area s ecology.
"Also mangrove forests, home
to a diversity of plant and animal
life, have long roots that stick out
well above water level.
"These grow very, very slowly
and a coating of oil on this will
take a very long time to recover,
adversely affecting numerous
species," he said.
US experts join oil spill task force
Fears that terrorists might be tar-
geting Caribbean Airlines (CAL)
flights from Guyana to New York
seem to have abated, at least from
T&T s end.
"There s nothing to report. I can t
talk now, I am in a meeting," CAL s
corporate communications manager
Clint Williams told the T&T Guardian
yesterday when asked for an update
on the threat.
Transport Minister Stephen Cadiz
hadn t heard any bad news about any
other CAL flights leaving Guyana
"You know it s only the bad news
that travels," he said, indicating he
According to reports, while officials
in Guyana were not dismissive, they
are tightlipped about the threat.
Williams had said one specific
flight, BW 484, was targeted over
two specific days, Monday and Tues-
Concerning Monday s flight, Kai-
eteur News Online reported that the
plane had landed safely in the US
after heavy security checks in Guyana
and further checks on its arrival.
Cadiz said yesterday was a regular
day at Piarco with all flights operating
according to schedule.
However, airport security was kept
on full alert, he said.
Reports from Guyana said all CAL
flights to New York would operate as
scheduled and heightened security
will remain in place for a number of
days there and in Barbados, Jamaica,
T&T and the US.
A man with a Trinidadian accent
called in the threat from Barbados,
it was reported.
When asked the nature of the dan-
ger, he hung up.
Cadiz, not quite saying the threat
was a prank, said, "Prank calls hap-
pen. Airlines get these from time to
time. It s not a good part of the indus-
try. The airport is always on alert,
whether there is a call or not."
No new terrorism
