Technical Conference

Tungkol sa Technical Conference, ito ang maipapaabot ko sa inyo. Ang nag-Preside sa Conference ay si Director Reynaldo R. Villafuerte EMB-Region 4-B. Gamit ang isang projector at wide screen, isa-isang tiningnan ang mga pictures ng mga napaulat na diumanoy oil spill. Nandon ang mga taga-Coast Guard, NDCC, Office of the Civil Defense, Chemical Engineers ng DENR, at iba pang mga kinatawan mula sa iba pang ahensya ng gobyerno.

Sa palitan ng mga kuro-kuro, napag-alaman mula sa mga analysis ng mga eksperto, ang naganap sa Sibale ay oil leak at hindi oil spill. Ayon sa Coast Guard ang tumagas na langis ay nagmula sa makina at fuel tank ng M/V Mactan. Ayon sa pagsusuri, ang parameters o pamantayan kung damaging o nasa safe limits ang dagat, 4.0 is dangerous, ang lumabas sa Coast Guard Lab. Examination ay 0.8 lang, kaya nasa safe limits.

Kung itutuloy ang salvaging operation, ang EMB-DENR ay tinanong ang Coast Guard sa bagay na ito, kasi ang Coast Guard ang may jurisdiction sa ganitong salvaging operation. Sa puntong ito, wala muna naging komento ang Coast Guard kung papayagan ang Calixto Ent. na mag-operate.

Sabi nga ni Director, marami ang nabulabog sa nangyaring diumanoy oil spill incident, kagaya ng Phil. Coast Guard na pumunta ng Sibale na parang nasayang lang ang aviation fuel dahil sa hindi accurate reporting at iba pang ahensya ng gobyerno na nabahala sa balita. May nakuha akon Report
