Subsidiary of Norwegian Firm Hid Major Leaks

It has now become known that the highly controversial Dutch subsidiary of the Norwegian oil tank firm, Odfjell had not reported a major leak in 2009. Thousands of liters of methanol were leaked. A large part of the firm’s activities were closed upon order of authorities in 2012 due to insufficient safety measures. In ten year’s time, there had been 64 incidents. The tanks have not been checked for 30 years.
