Two engineers from Boots & Coots Services have been brought in to aid with work on a leaking oil well in the Gulf of Paria.

In a release on Wednesday from the Ministry of Energy and Energy industries, they confirmed the arrival of the engineers on Tuesday night.

The release stated Boots & Coots "has over 40 years' knowledge and experience in addressing the industry's most challenging well control problems - onshore, offshore and subsea. " and with their additional support "the response team will now be better able to treat with well control, containment and clean-up. "

On Monday and Tuesday, representatives from Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) attended meetings at the incident command centre and were involved in containment exercises.
Aerial and marine surveillance continue to indicate that there is no visible contamination of the shoreline between Orange Field and Cedros.

The maritime advisory to marine craft operators remain in effect and the Ministry urges sea-farers to comply with the advisory as there will be a ramping-up of activity around the site in the coming days.
