UK Dispersant Stockpile

United Kingdom Dispersant Stockpile (UKDS)  is a readily accessible and easily mobilised stockpile of dispersant for industry use within the UKCS. Dasic Slickgone NS is located at Inverness (200m3) and Scalloway Shetlands (300m3). Subscription to UKDS provides critical, immediate access to substantial amounts of dispersant, support and dispersant application equipment*.

The stockpile is large enough to provide for a serious UKCS incident and strategically located to meet a fast response. There are road freight retainer arrangements at the locations to guarantee response.

In the event of a large incident, the stockpiles will cover a significant portion of time, allowing both dispersant suppliers to ramp up their production as well as alternative global sources to be identified, to meet the demand for a continual supply.

The stockpile can be used independently for any incident, whether subsea or on the marine surface.

This stockpile may also be used with the Subsea Incident Response Toolkit (SIRT)  - additional supplementry agreements apply.

A UKDS subscriber may gain access to the stockpile on a short-term agreement if required.  An annual subscription applies in order to support the ongoing infrastructure, maintenance and exercise procedures – ensuring the dispersant is response ready.
