Petron CEO on the Oil Spill
Under our Ligtas Guimaras program, we have already cleared 25 kilometers of shoreline and we expect the on-shore clean-up to finish in 45 days.
45 days? Sure that's possible, yeah, let's see.
We will continue to commit all necessary Petron resources in support of this effort. We are committed to the solution of this problem. At sea, we have deployed substantial equipment including oil skimmers, oil spill booms, dispersants, and Waterborne Industry Spill Equipment (WISE) tugboats to combat the oil spill. We have also placed properly-equipped vessels in strategic areas to monitor the oil spill and ensure that this is contained.
Resources like oil absorbents, damped manually by the people from the community to the very small rocks and mangrove saplings, resources so valuable that they visibly are not of any help at all. The other day I also heard they are using hays and human hair to absorb the oil. 2 Million gallons of oil, how many human beings should have their hair cut to absorb this oil, and how if the hair is oily too?
