Regarding the progress of Fluvial Maritime Contingency Plan for Oil Spills and Monitoring in the area of Quintero, ENAP reports:

- With a total of 70 divers, the largest number recorded so far, we worked in the cleanup and mitigation in the sector Quintero Bay, affected by the dumping of oil decanting.

- This team is part of the crew consists of more than 120 people, including crew, operators and technicians SUATRANS, SAAM, LESMAR, FREEMAQ, Oxxean, and STERICYCLE DUTY MARINE companies involved in the operation.

- The intense work allowed the cleaning of 300 m2, subtracting only 735 m2 of the total area affected less than 10% of the total area.

- During the day we continued to aspirate the product in the seabed, for which two systems of dredgers, two hydraulic pumps and air were used. It was further continued with the installation and consolidation of underwater containment barriers arranged in the area to prevent the dispersion of fuel particles.

- In this work also they worked fisherfolk United Caletas Quintero and Union Ventanas who have made mesh containment 20 meters long by 2 meters high, which were installed anchored to the seabed so overlapping, not to affect the fauna, in order to catch the dispersed product. Meshes began to be installed in the last hours on the seabed. On board four boats, fishermen also continued with the tasks of cleaning and inspection of the sea surface.

- In the absence of major problems with rainfall announced for this weekend in the area, it is estimated that over the next few days should end the biggest product recovery process, keeping only the work of monitoring and cleaning established by the Maritime Authority.
