OpenLife Nigeria reports that Rainoil Limited has assured safety around the Ijegun-Egba community where its LPG depot is located, stating that there is no gas leak.
In a press statement made available to OpenLife, the company stated that the speculation and rumour of a gas leak were unfounded.
“Rainoil has carried out a routine fire safety drill to ensure the preparedness of staff in the event of an emergency.”
The company stated that a representative from the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) was on the ground to witness the entire process. This routine fire drill was apparently mistaken to be a result of the gas leak in the facility
The company called on the community and other stakeholders to dispel the gas leakage rumour as the depot has since resumed operations following the fire safety drill.
We will continue to ensure that all safety measures are in place in all our Operations. We are safety conscious and remain committed to the safety of our community and the environment, the company stated.
