Oil Found In Jamaica 2018
Oil found in jamaica
The Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica says a geological study recently conducted by CGG Robertson of the United Kingdom has revealed two independent live oil seeps in different sections of Jamaica’s oil blocks which indicated “encouraging” signs for possible petroleum potential on and off-shore Jamaica. In light of the discovery, Minister of science, energy and technology, Dr Andrew Wheatley on Thursday cautiously welcomed the report and said that the find could increase economic activity and help to solve Jamaica’s growth problems.
Meanwhile, there is a growing online petition calling for strategic limited states of public emergency across the parishes of Clarendon, St Catherine and St Andrew as a means of sustaining the momentum, which will have a beneficial ripple effect in the adjoining parishes of St Ann, Manchester and Kingston, garnered from the security measure now in effect in St James.
