Circular to residents on leak at Shell Sembawang station and cleaning up process
We would like to inform you that we had a leak in one of the fuel tanks at the Shell Sembawang Retail Station. The leak from the fuel tank had been stopped.
We had also stopped operations at the station and have been working with the Singapore Civil Defence Force to clean up the affected area. The authorities have also cordoned off the affected area and put up signages prohibiting the use of hand phones and smoking around the site.
In addition to the clean-up activities, we have been monitoring and taking measurements at regular intervals. Readings indicate that the amount of fuel vapour in the other public areas is at safe levels and are not flammable.
Safety remains a key priority for us. We apologise for this incident and for any inconvenience caused.
