Lima, March 19, 2022. Repsol reports that the actions to clean up the sea and beaches affected by the spill of January 15 are 94% complete. To date, 18 beaches are awaiting reopening for public use, a decision that the competent authority will take.

Likewise, more than 1,400 water, soil, and sediment samples collected throughout the area continue to be analyzed, complying with the authorities’ mandate. The evaluated results will define the next remediation actions.

On the coast, the international SCAT standard continues to be applied and the cleaning of rocky areas with low-pressure water and absorbent pompoms.

At sea, the entire coastline continues to be monitored, with no resources spared in the event of new stains appearing from rocks or cliffs due to natural wave action.

Repsol reiterates its commitment to restoring the Peruvian coastline, deploying all necessary efforts.
