PetroSA gas-to-liquids plant in Mossel Bay.

PetroSA has announced that, on Friday, evidence of a leak was found in a condensate pipeline that runs from the FA offshore platform to the GTL refinery in Mossel Bay.

“The leak was observed in the land section in the vicinity of Nautilus Bay at approximately 90m elevation and approximately 500m offshore,” the company said in a statement.

“The amount of leaked material and the extent of the contamination are still unknown. Further investigative work is required to determine the exact location of the leak and define appropriate repair and remediation strategies.”

PetroSA said that public health and safety, as well as mitigating any environmental impacts, are its “top priority” and that “all appropriate measures” will be taken to minimize and remedy the impacts.

It added that “no immediate threats to public health are anticipated.”
