Heritage Petroleum seeks to beef up security during hunting season

As the hunting season continues, Heritage Petroleum Company has been engaged with authorities towards ensuring the safety of staff and other people who utilize, traverse and work within its fields and properties.

This is in an effort to promote safety and security during the hunting season which runs from the first day of October to the last day in February, in areas where it is permitted.

“We see this as the best way forward for all parties involved; allowing hunting in areas where we have assessed that the safety risk is acceptable to all and having a common understanding of how to do this with no harm to people or assets.”

Heritage Petroleum has also reminded that hunting was never allowed in the Forest Reserve and Grand Ravine areas as has been reported.

“There have been occasions where hunters were seen hunting in close proximity to our Tank Farms and were asked to stop by our mobile patrols. This was necessary to protect our employees, as well as the hunters, as they were adjacent to large hydrocarbon storage areas.”
