1. Since the incident, we have worked with more than 2,500 people- to quickly and efficiently clean up the sea and coastline.

2. We have led the clean-up work at sea, using larger vessels to collect the product and smaller vessels to maintain the perimeter to be cleaned.

3. On several affected beaches we used the high-technology Bow Collector technique to remove oil slicks from the surface water.

4. To effectively monitor the clean-up work, we conducted aerial monitoring with helicopters, in addition to the use of artificial intelligence and satellite image tracking.

5. We have also effectively used absorbent materials on all the affected beaches to collect the product on the coast.

6. We have also employed the use of heavy machinery to remove the affected sand and transfer it to the La Pampilla Refinery for treatment.
