Oil leak at Shell petrol station along Sembawang Road contained

SINGAPORE: An oil leak at a petrol station along Sembawang Road has been a cause of concern for residents in the area.

Shell said it is looking into the source of the leak, which started on Monday at about 5.50pm, and has also checked all its other stations.

MP for Nee Soon GRC K Shanmugam was on site on Thursday morning to check out the operations as he wanted to know if the leak had been contained and the vapour levels were within control.

Since the incident happened on Monday, Shell has been monitoring the situation every two hours.

He said Shell has assured him that the leak has been contained to the premises of the station and the vapour levels are normal and not elevated.

Mr Shanmugam said: "Residents are concerned because you see the station boarded up, manholes are opened up... There needed to have been faster communications as to what has been happening.

"They have sent a circular around and I have told them to send another one today. Basically what residents want to know -- they want to know whether there is any safety issue -- that is a primary concern and we need to deal with that.

"I have been assured there was never any safety issue and there isn't any now, the leak has been contained and they will continue to monitor it... The residents feel they could have been told earlier so we can improve (our communications), it could have been faster."

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
