EXXONMobil has recruited Canadian company SEI Industries, who developed the distinctive orange Bambi Bucket that can be slung underneath fire-fighting helicopters, to aid workers at its liquefied natural gas project site after a massive landslide hit the region last week.
This time, it is a lightweight portable fuel container called “Fuel-Easy” that SEI is sending.
Like the Bambi Bucket, it can be slung underneath a helicopter. The fuel is needed to maintain basic needs and living accommodations for workers at the US$15.7 billion (K31.4 billion) LNG project, SEI said in a news release.
The workers camp, 7km from the slide area, houses 4,500.
SEI Industries is working around the clock to produce Fuel-Easy bags for the relief project.
It is expected to take 35 days to re-open the road covered by the slide.
