Tunisia-Oil spills into Zarzouna dock, STIR clarifies

An unintentional spill of a decreased quantity of oil happened at the oil wharf in ZarzounaBizerte under the Tunisian Company of Refining Industries (STIR).

The spill came from an unused pipe and necessary measures to properly restrain the oil spell has instantly started including the operational deployment of floating barriers, with technical assistance from the company‘s emergency response services and the Office of the Merchant Marine and Ports, stated Ghassen Zaoui, director-general of STIR to the TAP Agency.

Zaoui steadfastly maintained the effective process to neutralise the oil spill is underway, promptly adding this apparent accident is trivial in direct comparison to the oil leak that transpired in 2018.
