By BBN Staff: Yesterday, there was an oil spill at one of the Belize Natural Energy’s (BNE) plant in Spanish Lookout.

The leak reportedly occurred for almost two hours at Mike Usher 1 (MU1) well site, and since then BNE has deployed its machinery to do repairs at the plant.

Today BBN contacted BNE and they confirmed to us that yesterday morning around 7:50, crude oil was observed on the surface of the ground at the Mike Usher 1 (MU1) well site in Spanish Lookout.

“Belize Natural Energy’s Control Room was immediately notified and the spill response team and protocols were promptly engaged and activated. The safety devices built into the system had already shut in the well, stopping the flow of oil. At 7:57am the first response vehicle was at the site,” BNE wrote in an email to us.

BNE also said that they notified the Department of the Environment, and the Geology and Petroleum Department  who responded immediately.

According to BNE, the well site cleanup and remediation work are ongoing.
