Anadarko’s oil spill response readiness in Gulf of Mexico put to the test

Preparedness Analysts with Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement’s (BSEE) Oil Spill Preparedness Division have tested Anadarko Petroleum’s response equipment and readiness in its Gulf of Mexico operations.

The auditors boarded the Marine Spill Response Corp.-owned Pollution Control Vessel Louisiana Responder at Fort Jackson, Louisiana on July 14 to conduct the testing.

While conducting an equipment verification, the team witnessed the testing of a skimmer and other associated equipment, stored in Buras, Louisiana, on the Mississippi River. Subsequent response equipment, stored at Marine Spill Response Corp. in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, was also verified.

According to the BSEE, the objective of equipment verification is to assure operators have access to necessary resources outlined in their oil spill response plans and to confirm that specialized equipment is in acceptable operating condition and is being properly maintained.
