Small fishermen in Rayong on Monday called on Thailand's biggest petrochemical company to do more to rehabilitate oil-spill impacted sites along the province’s coastline, saying they still are living with the after effects of a spill two years ago.

The demand was made at a forum held by the local Small-Scale Fishery Association to mark the second anniversary of the July 27, 2013 oil spill caused by the rupture of a PTT Global Chemical Plc offshore pipeline near the Map Ta Phut industrial estate that spilled 50,000 litres of crude oil into the sea.
