Repercussions of Gas or Oil Leaks

Impact of petrochemical leaks

Groundwater and surface water can be contaminated by leaks and spills. Waterways, plants, and animals that depend on them may suffer because of this.

The health of individuals can be impacted by contamination of surface and groundwater. For instance, if dangerous liquids get into the food or water supply.

Leaks of natural gas, primarily methane, not only waste an energy source but also act as potent greenhouse gases. It has a major impact on climate change.

Environmental impact of new tanks

The production of petrochemicals increases soil, water, and air pollution.

The effects of this can be felt globally as well as in smaller systems like specific ecosystems.

For instance, greenhouse gases released during the production of petrochemicals may have an impact on climate change.


Depending on the severity and length of time the leak has occurred, this alone can cost hundreds to thousands for the business personally.

There are strict government fines for lack of competence which could cost from thousands to millions depending on size of leak.

Fatalities or serious harm can occur where neglect of petrochemical tanks takes place.
