Date of Release:

State-run oil refiner CPC Corp, Taiwan (CPC) failed to seek environmental approval for modifications made to its facility in Kaohsiung Siaogang District (小港) due to emissions issues, environmentalists said alleging that the company made up false emission numbers.

Following the closure of a major CPC oil refinery in Kaohsiung’s Houjin (後勁) area last year, the company proposed to expand a facility in Siaogang’s Dalinpu (大林埔) area to process reformates — substances that are converted from naphtha and used to make gasoline.

State-run oil refiner CPC Corp, Taiwan (CPC, 台灣中油) received three separate fines totaling NT$9 million (US$275,351) after an underground pipe ruptured in New Taipei City’s Sijhih District (汐止) on Monday, spilling oil in several rivers.

The pipe, which carries boiler fuel oil, ruptured near Jhongsing Road in Sijhih, covering nearby roads with oil. Several motorcyclists were reportedly injured after slipping on the oil.

The New Taipei City Environmental Protection Department said it has cleaned up 630,000 liters of oil in Tsaolan Creek (草濫溪) and Neikou Creek (內溝溪) so far.
