YENAGOA—A security consultant with Conoil Nigeria Limited, Bello Bina, has dismissed as “false alarm,” the claim that a strange gas leakage occurred at the oil well head 4 and 5 of Conoil in Koluama 1 community of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state
Bina, in a statement in Yenagoa, said that the smoke noticed from the oil well heads was routine testing and clearing of a gas well before resumption of normal gas operation.
He said: “What the company is doing is test running its gas wells and it is not a dangerous activity.”
It will be recalled that an environmental group and the Ijaw Youth Council had raised the alarm that there was a strange gas leakage from Conoil oil well heads.
The leak, Vanguard learned, was noticed in the coastal area by the natives.
