DETROIT'S MARINE POLLUTION CONTROL ASKED TO ASSIST IN OIL SPILL OFF PUERTO RICO COAST

 DETROIT, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit's Marine Pollution Control (MPC), one of the world's most experienced oil spill control companies, has been asked to assist in the oil spill off the coast of Puerto Rico.
 David Usher, MPC president, said that his company has sent a team of about 15 people armed with special pumps and other equipment to help off-load a barge which hit a coral reef last week.
 About 750,000 gallons of oil were spilled; another 750,000 gallons remained on the barge.
 Usher said MPC is working under contract for the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy.
 Marine Pollution Control has participated in the cleanup of major oil and hazardous material spills throughout the world for more than 27 years. It assisted in the spill control of the Exxon Valdez and Persian Gulf spills.
