Environmental response consultancy

We manage all aspects of oil pollution emergency plan development and approval

Our environmental response consultancy services include:

Management and coordination of response exercises
We are renowned in the oil and gas industry for the development of OPEP solutions that meet Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) regulatory requirements. We help organisations prepare for and respond to a pollution incident.

The Petrofac OPEP template is distinctive in that it has been specifically tailored as an operational response document. This new format has historically not been associated with such documents. The plans focus on up-front, essential response information and provide enhanced checklists for both offshore and onshore personnel, providing for an effective well-structured response to an incident.

We aim to provide a flexible service to meet client requirements, while ensuring the framework of the UK regulatory regime is maintained. Our strong relationship with UK regulators allows for us to manage all aspects of plan development, compilation, distribution and the OPEP approval process.

We have a team specifically dedicated to the compilation of oil spill response planning, which also includes developing and running oil spill response related exercises. Our current client base includes: BP, Talisman, Marathon, CNR, BG, Fairfield, Enquest and Nexen.

In 2016 we welcomed more than 100 of the industry’s offshore oil spill response stakeholders to an inaugural event, hosted in collaboration with Marine Scotland, with the aim of facilitating engagement between experts and responders within the offshore oil spill community.

Represented bodies included:

  • Government departments
  • SOSREP
  • Maritime and Coastguard Agency
  • Major operators/service companies
