Barge carrying oil sludge departs Guimaras

September 22, 2006

ILOILO CITY – The barge that carries the first batch of oil sludge collected from the shorelines of Guimaras left Thursday as Malacañang reported that the sunken oil tanker continues to leak bunker oil.

Nueva Valencia Mayor Diosdado Gonzaga said “Carmen” left Thursday with 500 tons of oil sludge. It is set to arrive in Misamis Oriental on Saturday where the sludge will be hauled.

The barge will return to Guimaras as soon as the sludge is unloaded. Two more barges are on stand by in the island-province as there is still much oil sludge that needs to be collected. (Sunstar Iloilo, Sept. 22, 2006)
