Peru oil spill assessment

Dr. Elliott Taylor completed an assessment of the ongoing cleanup at PetroPeru’s February 2016 pipeline spill site (Km206) in the Amazon Basin. His technical report provides the basis for community engagement in cleanup activities and recommendations encompassing cleanup endpoints and net environmental benefit concepts. He also undertook a quick assessment of a new, June 27, pipeline spill near Barranca with the goal of providing feedback on response options and endpoints.Peru 2016_2 Peru 2016_1
