Emergency teams have removed most oil spill spots and encircled all coastal zones after securing vital facilities of Al-Zour zone and its surrounding areas, the oil sector's spokesman Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said on Sunday.
The coastal zones have been encircled and coasts were cleaned after making sure that there were no effects of any other oil spots in the sea, he added in a news statement. He extolled cooperation of citizens and residents who stayed away from the prohibited areas for their safety.
Asked about the source of oil spots, he said some samples were taken and sent to laboratories to be analyzed in order to uncover reasons in this matter.
The emergency teams of the oil sector have continued to exert their efforts, in collaboration with Ministry of Electricity and Water, to follow up and contain the remaining oil spots in the southern area.
This is in line with plans and results of evaluation prepared by emergency teams and the relevant international agencies.
