MRPL checks for oil leak

The Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) is checking the possibility of oil leakage from its underground pipelines here, after people complained of a leak. The residents expressed fear over the leaked oil mixing with water of River Phalguni.

In a statement on Wednesday, MRPL said, during a routine pipeline corridor inspection from MRPL to New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT), officials noticed oil traces on the surface near AdaniWilmar on SEZ Road. The source of the oil was yet to be established, it said, adding that waste material was being illegally dumped in the vicinity of the MRPL pipeline corridor. The possibility of dumping waste oil by unknown persons in the vicinity of the pipelines could not be ruled out, it said. “To eliminate the possibility of leak from MRPL’s underground pipelines, the company has started excavation,” it said.
