Spill Management

Spill Management

PTTEP spill preparedness and response follows the principles of the Incident Management and Command System, which helps to establish the spill management organizational structure and the response process. For an effective response and management, PTTEP collaborates with other national and international spill response organizations to ensure that any spill incidents from company activities will be immediately and appropriately responded.

PTTEP spill management plan follows the 3-tiered response system in accordance with the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA) and International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), with each tiered response activation based on the following:

  • Tier 1: Local spill; can be adequately handled by on-site resources and capability
  • Tier 2: Local and national spill; a spill beyond the capability of on-site resources, with cooperation from the in-country spill response organization
  • Tier 3: Global and international spill; require substantial additional response from the international spill response organizations

To ensure our effective spill management system, routine exercises and the capability assessment program are regularly conducted to assess our level of spill management capability as well as identify gaps for further improvement.
