Tank farms have been destroy by explosions & fires that have caused by overfilling! Look up Buncefield, for one example. To say nothing of the pollution this kind of blunder causes.
My first guess would be Abooba, I mean Aruba. I guess if you don't report it, it really isn't a spill. Kind of like if a tree falls in the forest, but with far greater implications if no one hears.
I wonder how often manifests will show visits to this site, tanker trucks collecting condensate etc., yet no one in the industry thought it necessary to report this?
My wager is nothing will be done until the "surface owner" reports it or someone in the industry sees it on this blog. They don't care until someone makes them care.
Too bad they are too shallow to see that we all share the same air and in this case, the same water.
It amazes me that this industry requires the surface owner to regulate them. Where is the mineral right owner and the company in this business, the ones making the profit?
Those making a profit have no resposibility for ensuring the safety of those before and those left behind after their wake of greed.
I just don't get it.
I do. I feel a responsibility.
