DALLAS — The U.S. Department of State on Tuesday released a comprehensive report on the March 4 oil spill that killed 10 workers in a Gulf of California refinery.
The U.N. Oil and Gas Agency also said in a statement it was investigating the spill and “assessing the cause and manner of its occurrence.”
The report is the first in more than two years to address the disaster and was ordered by President Donald Trump to be made public by Jan. 5.
A total of 2,567 barrels of oil were released into the Gulf of Los Angeles in the spill that was triggered by an explosion and subsequent fire.
A separate accident at a Los Angeles refinery killed five workers in 2016.
The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the U.R.V., said it has been notified of the report.
It said it will take appropriate action to address issues raised in the report and ensure a safe and efficient cleanup.
