NPC: Routine maintenance not dangerous
The National Petroleum Corporation (NPC) gave the assurance a short while ago that routine maintenance being undertaken in Christ Church “is not dangerous”.
A notice said the NPC “ is in the process of refilling its odourant tank in the Woodbourne, Christ Church area”.
The NPC said “during this routine maintenance fumes will escape into the atmosphere, giving the impression of a gas leak”. It said the exercise should take about two hours.
There were reports that people in the area expressed concern about a strong odour.
