Facility Oil Spill Plan


Facility Response Plan (FRP)
An FRP demonstrates a facility’s preparedness to respond to a worst case oil discharge.  Under the Clean Water Act, all owners/operators of oil storage facilities are required to prepare a facility-specific response plan.  This plan, to the maximum extent possible, is for responding to a “worst case discharge” of oil and to the substantial threat of such a discharge to the surrounding environment.


We write Facility Response Plans (FRPs) for submission to the USCG and EPA in compliance with their requirements.  We prepare the plans and guide them through approval process.  We help with revisions and in understanding what applies when.


Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans

New amendments to the Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) rule became effective on April 4, 2009.  The dates that owners or operators of facilities must prepare or amend their SPCC plans is still being reviewed by the EPA.  However, current rules for maintaining an SPCC plan still apply.


We assist with the SPCC plans.
