National Power cleans up oil leak from retired pipeline

Manila (20 May) -- An apparent attempt to pilfer oil or the pipe containing it has led to the seepage of oil from inside the pipe to a creek along United Nations Avenue in Manila.

The oil leaked from a fracture in the pipe. The fracture appeared to be man-made and deliberate, possibly caused by a sharp object like a handsaw.

The pipe lies at a portion of a 22-kilometer long pipeline, which was used to transfer heavy fuel oil from the Manila Thermal Plant to the Sucat Thermal Power Plant and the Pandacan Oil Depot. The pipeline has been retired since 2000. It is owned by the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM) Corporation.

The National Power Corporation, which operates and maintains assets of PSALM, immediately started the cleanup of the oil leak and the repair of the pipe upon learning of the leak.

The leak was brought to the attention of National Power by a concerned citizen last Friday, 14 May 2010, but it appears the pilferage attempt which led to the leak happened before that date. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
