Event Description

Environment Pollution in Australia on Wednesday, 22 May, 2013 at 08:49 (08:49 AM) UTC.

Santos has come under fire from environmentalist groups after it confirmed the leakage of 240,000 litres of oil over five days near the Queensland-South Australian border. Santos said a leak in their Jackson oil fields had been plugged on Monday by a specialist team flown in from the U.S.A. The well, in the company's Zeus field, is believed to have started leaking either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning last week. While it was described as a "limited leak" the company said it was generating about 300 barrels a day. A barrel is equivalent to 158 litres. A Santos spokesman said that now the well had been contained it would be able to access the site and assess the environmental damage.
