EPA Develops Plan To Tackle Oil Spillage

The Environmental Protection Agency says it has developed a contingency plan to deal with any oil spillage along the country’s coastline.

In an interview with Radio Ghana, the Executive Director of EPA, Daniel Amlalo said the plan identifies the risk oil transportation poses to the environment.

In 2011, KOSMOS energy spilled 699 barrels of mud which contained poisonous heavy metals that could affect the country’s ecosystem.

Mr Amlalo said this emphasises the need for individual companies to also have their own contingency plans to deal with such situations.
