YET another blowout has occurred at Atlantic LNG in Point Fortin.

On Tuesday fire broke out at the base of a Flame Pole when a seal broke loose.

The incident which occurred around 8.30 pm, did not result in any injuries to employees or damage to the plant.

According to a report from the Point Fortin sub-fire station, the seal popped and fire shot out. An employee nearby alerted a safety officer who quickly extinguished the fire.

On May 21, Atlantic LNG employees had to evacuate the plant after a plug blew out and struck an employee in the chest.

Three days before that incident, Train 11 plant had to be shut down for six hours when a natural gas leak was discovered in a two-inch pipeline.
