Shell oil company admits that discharge into the North Sea is still active

Royal Dutch Shell oil company reported Tuesday that its pipeline ruptured in the North Sea oil is poured, although at a much slower pace than before, which is already considered as the worst spill in a decade in the United Kingdom. "The flow of the discharge has been reduced to less than two barrels a day," explained technical director of exploration and production activities of Shell in Europe, Glen Cayley, told BBC Radio 4.

Reuters revealed on Saturday that poured into the Gannet field, which Shell co-owns with Exxon Mobil and is located 180 kilometers from the Scottish port of Aberdeen, had been letting out oil for two days before the authorities or Shell informed. In this sense, Cayley has defended the company's initial silence, claiming that the spill was located in complicated underwater infrastructure.
