Oil Spill Contingency Plans (OSCPs) are key to obtaining a licence to operate and are needed to illustrate how a company will respond in the unlikely event of a spill. If an oil spill does occur it can have serious and wide-ranging consequences; affecting a variety of resources and calling for a fast and effective response by a number of different organisations. We know that an OSCP is essential to combating a spill effectively.
Our contingency planning is a systematic approach to exploring what can go wrong and the steps that need to be undertaken in an emergency situation. A good plan identifies contingencies through a risk assessment process and shows the strategies needed to avoid or cope with them. Our approach finds and assesses oil spill risks, helping to ensure the correct arrangements are in place to manage spills. We identify industry best practice strategies to deal with oil spill risks and have an extensive track record of delivering successful OSCP worldwide, whatever the environment.
In reality, few situations actually unfold according to a plan. However, if we have helped you to plan the right contingencies and consider the possible responses, then you are more likely to successfully meet major goals and targets.
Whether the OSCP is a revision of an existing plan, or a completely new approach; we communicate openly with you to provide a plan that best suits your business needs. Drawing on years of expertise and taking into account industry best practice and regulatory compliance, we can offer a clear and succinct OSCP, giving technical guidance and effective solutions that can be readily implemented for an effective response.
