- This payment has been made to continue supporting those affected by mitigating the interruption of their work activities as a result of the spill.
- The company’s commitment to the families is long term, and it is 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 will bring to 6,000 soles the total advance compensation that is being provided to each person registered in the single register drawn up by local governments with technical assistance from INDECI. This constitutes an advance of the total future compensation to be agreed between the parties, in order to help them mitigate the impact on the work activities of the affected generated by the oil spill of last January 15, during the unloading of the vessel “Mare Doricum”.
It is also important to point out that more than 3,000 people have already received the first partial advance of compensation amounting to 3,000 soles. This is 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 register includes more than 5,500 people.
The company and the government are in constant coordination to ensure that all those affected will receive the compensation advances in the shortest possible time. The company has also announced that, as part of the post-emergency actions, it is working, in coordination with the authorities on a medium and long-term action plan to design and implement sustainable development projects in the communities of the 5 districts near La Pampilla Refinery, focused on improving local economies and other projects beneficial for the local communities.
