CHIANG MAI – Cleanup of aircraft fuel that leaked from a pipeline at Chiang Mai airport and caught fire on Saturday night was completed on Monday, with PTT promising compensation for the damage.

According to Mr. Kittikorn Sukwan, the Chiang Mai Tank Farm Manager of the PTT Public Co, Ltd., the leakage of the Jet A-1 fuel at the station in Chiang Mai airport has been reported at 11:15pm yesterday (8 November 2014).

He said that part of the leaked fuel flowed into the public ditch and caught fire at a tree.

PTT’s emergency response team took care of the situation in time. The flame damaged two houses but caused no injury. Afterwards, the Chiang Mai airport resumed its normal operations.

PTT sent its staff to examine and investigate additional damage to the community caused from this incident and had offered help in areas where damage has been done.

PTT will be working with the airport and related sectors to repair any damaged caused as quickly as possible.
