  • This in order to continue supporting those affected to mitigate the interruption of their work activities as a result of the spill.
  • Likewise, the company stated that the commitment with the families is long term, so they are working on an action plan to design and implement development projects in the 5 districts of the area.

Lima, April 07, 2022. More than a month after signing the agreement with the Peruvian government, the company has decided to start the management of the second advance payment of compensation for an additional amount of 3,000 soles.

This would make a total of 6,000 soles in advance compensation that is being provided to each person registered in the single register prepared by the local governments with the technical assistance of INDECI. This constitutes an advance on account of a future compensation to be agreed between the parties, in order to help them mitigate the impact on their work activities generated by the oil spill of last January 15, during the unloading of the “Mare Doricum ship”.

It is also important to point out that more than 3,000 people have already received the first partial advance of compensation amounting to S/. 3,000 soles, which is equivalent to more than 50% of the beneficiaries registered in the single register developed within the framework of the commitments signed between the company and the authorities on March 4. This list includes more than 5,500 people.

The company and the government are in constant coordination to ensure that all those affected can receive the compensation advances in the shortest possible time. The company also announced that, as part of the post-emergency actions, they are working, in coordination with the authorities, on a medium and long-term action plan to design and implement sustainable development projects with the communities of the 5 districts near La Pampilla Refinery, focused on improving local economies and other beneficial projects for them.
