Minister of State for Environment, Sharon Ikeazor, says necessary efforts are being made to ensure the fire incident at Ukpokiti oil field is contained.

Ikeazor in a press statement on Friday said the oil vessel belonging to Shebah Exploration and Production Company Limited (SEPCOL) was holding about 50-60 thousand barrels of crude oil at the time of the incident.

She however said no death was reported, and that a joint investigation has been planned for the weekend.

It would be recalled that fire engulfed a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel named ‘Trinity Spirit’ in the early hours of Wednesday.
