Oil-spill preparedness in Aker BP

Aker BP has established a well-organized and prepared oil-spill preparedness in the event of an incident. Emergency preparedness plans have been prepared for activities on a general basis, and for oil-spill preparedness particularly. Aker BP has secured solid company-internal oil-spill preparedness competence. In addition, Aker BP participates in external qualifying networks within oil-spill preparedness.

The Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies (NOFO) is specially trained to manage oil-spill response operations. Aker BP has participated actively in NOFO since 2001. If Aker BP were to be responsible for an oil spill, NOFO will assume a central role with regard to mitigation measures and oil-spill recovery at sea.
