Oil Spill Contingency Planning —                             User-friendly and response focused contingency plans

Do you know how you would respond efficiently and effectively in an oil spill?  

Our contingency planning is a systematic approach to explore what can go wrong and the steps to take in an emergency. 

We produce user-friendly and response focused oil spill contingency plans and associated documentation including: 

  • National Oil Spill Contingency Plans 
  • Oil Spill Contingency Planning Corporate Guidelines and Regulations. 
  • Oil Spill Contingency Plans (site-specific, regional and corporate) 
  • UK Oil Pollution Emergency Plans 
  • Tactical Response Plans 
  • Site Response Plans 
  • Emergency Response Plans (working with you to produce these)


Contingency Planning Process:

The contingency planning process includes:

  1. Oil spill planning scenario development
  2. Response strategy development
  3. Determining the response capability
  4. Creation of the Oil Spill Contingency
  5. Plan (OSCP) and associated documentation
  6. Roll out and implementation of the OSCP

Oil Spill Contingency Plans (OSCPs) are usually needed to obtain an operating licence. They are always good practice where a risk of an oil spill exists. They illustrate how a company will respond to an oil 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. An OSCP is essential to combat a spill effectively. 


What is an Oil Spill Contingency Plan?

A good plan identifies contingencies through a risk assessment process and shows the strategy and techniques needed to reduce the spill effect. We identify and assess oil spill risks, helping to ensure the correct arrangements are in place to manage spills. We identify good practice techniques to deal with oil spill risks and have an extensive track record of delivering successful OSCP worldwide, whatever the environment. We can also work with your teams to help you develop Emergency Contingency Response Plans that fit all emergency scenarios.  

Few situations unfold exactly according to a planned scenario. 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 plan; we communicate openly with you to provide a plan that best suits your business needs. We draw on years of experience and our knowledge of industry good practice and regulatory compliance to provide a clear OSCP, giving technical guidance and effective solutions for an effective response.
