The regional prosecutor Bío Bío, Marcela Cartagena, confirmed the possible link between the crisis that took place in August in Talcahuano due to the smell of gas that had to exhaust the Mallplaza Clap and the Biobio Clinic – with & # 39 ; the episodes of contamination in Quintero to Puchuncaví.
The researchers are responsible for Talcahuano prosecutor and environmental crime specialists, Ana María Aldana, who assumed for a few days.
In that line, Cartagena does not rule out the connection between the two facts and it is being investigated that it could be derived from the contamination episodes of Iran's oil originally released by ENAP in the port of the Bío Bío region.
Crossing from the Middle East
Just a few days before the emergence of the environmental crisis in Quintero and Puchuncaví, Radio Bío Bío had already developed the potential link between the contamination times in those communities that had happened in Talcahuano.
As indicated at the time, on August 3, before the height of Punta de Parra, the tanker of Monte Toledo, began to transfer crude oil from the Middle East to warehouses to the Cabo Victoria ship .
This fuel was equivalent to "Iran Heavy" with high concentrations of hydrogen sulphide and contains more than 100 parts per million, much more than crude oil that usually gets refined in our country.
Although everything goes smoothly, according to ENAP and the Maritime Authority, the surgery was asked when hundreds of people were removed from the Mall's Tomb and Bío Bío Clinic as a result of a strong smell of gas, which he said and the Health Ceremony and this Friday could not determine its origin.
Only one day later, the same ship, Corporal Victoria, went into Quintero, taking away suspicions between a possible connection.
