Case study: The rainbow is black

Oil spill exercise - team on beach

Our Malaysia offshore operations commenced the 'Black Rainbow 2018' oil spill exercise in order to review and test the inter-agency oil spill response performance.

Petrofac collaborated with Malaysia Petroleum Management (MPM), PETRONAS, and the Petroleum Industry Malaysia Mutual Aid Group (PIMMAG) in an exercise involving the deployment of specialist equipment like coastal booms and dispersant sprayers.

Meanwhile, the on and offshore response teams mobilised 55 people across multiple sites. The exercise was a great way to test and enhance joint preparedness.

“Operational resilience comes from a culture of preparedness; it builds confidence and ensures if we ever need to respond to an emergency, we do so decisively with positive actions.”
