Following the breakout of a fire after a storage tank caused an explosion at the New American Oil refinery in Argentina, workers launched a strike calling for better safety measures.

The incident that caused the death of three individuals has now led to union leaders, representatives of oil companies, and local government figures signing a deal to improve ‘training programmes and prepare active personnel and future workers on issues of on-the-job-safety.’

The deal set out also includes a spending requirement to ensure compliance with regulations.

In addition to the new deal, Argentina’s government is investigating potential infrastructure projects to boost domestic oil and gas output and, over time, lessen import costs.
