One-Gulf Plan Overview

Presented by Bill Goetzee

USCG District Eight – New Orleans

what is the one plan
What is the One Plan?
  • Common portions of Area Contingency Plans (ACPs) adopted by several Area Committees & known as: Base Plan
  • Area Specific Plan information – (Geographic Response Plans) submitted for participating Gulf Coast FOSC/COTP Zones
background
Background
  • ACPs plan for oil & hazmat spill response and marine fire fighting
  • Jointly created by Area Committees with federal, state, local, trustee, and industry responders for a specific geographic area
  • ACPs are required by OPA 1990 & NCP
  • 60 Coastal Area Committees established by OPA
  • ACPs are based upon the National Contingency Plan and Regional Contingency Plans
background1
Background
  • CG headquarters provided direction on format for ACPs
  • Each Federal On Scene Coordinator (FOSC) area has a separate ACP
  • Each Area Committee is required to exercise its ACP under the guidance of the USCG once every Three (3) years.
one plan historical timeline
One Plan Historical Timeline
  • Concept introduced at Clean Gulf 1999
  • Planners from three FOSC zones & TGLO held development meetings
  • MSO Port Arthur wrote base plan, which was finalized March 2001

benefits of one gulf plan
Benefits of One-Gulf Plan
  • More useful ACP by separating plan along the lines of planning & response
  • Reduces production time & eliminates duplication of effort
  • Coordination across AC boundaries creating regional consistency
  • Benefit to vessel, pipeline and OCS plan-holders as well as the responder community
  • Allows unit planners to focus their time on most important parts of ACP: sensitive sites & resources
  • ICS format supports responders ICS position
  • In short: A better plan with less work

mexus plan
MEXUS Plan
  • 2000: Using a 1980 Agreement as a foundation, the Mexican Navy and the USCG signed the MEXUS Plan a contingency plan to coordinate bilateral response to pollution incidents, or threats, in the coastal waters between Mexico and the United States.

Salvage & Marine Fire-Fighting

Under 33 CFR 155 USCG is amending the VRP Salvage & Marine FF requirements for TV carrying Oil. Final Rule 30 JAN 2009

the incident
The Incident
  • November 7, 2007 – The M/V Cosco Busan strikes the Bay Bridge tearing a 100 ft. long gash in its hull damaging two fuel tanks
  • 58,000 gallons of bunker fuel enters the Bay in ≤10 seconds
  • The USCG & DFG-OSPR are notified and respond immediately, on-scene in 50 minutes.
  • At its farthest extent, the spill impacts beaches & wildlife.
slide24
NCP Cites:
  • 40 CFR 300. 317
    • “Safety of Human Life must be given the top priority during every response action...and ensure the safety of response personnel”.
  • FOSC Responsible for safety of all responders
  • Comply with requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120

incident specific preparedness review
Incident Specific Preparedness Review
  • The goal of the ISPR is to document a thorough assessment of the Coast Guard preparedness process.
  • The primary mission of an ISPR team is not to grade or critically evaluate the actual response efforts undertaken, but instead, study the implication and effectiveness of the ACP and its integration with vessel response plans, facility response plans and other relevant and applicable plans in effect at the federal, state, and local levels.

  • When implemented, ACP’s must be adequate to remove, mitigate, and prevent a worst case discharge of oil or hazardous material from any source that poses a substantial threat.

Continuing Improvements
  • TheACP is a living document which needs to be regularly updated to remain current.
  • Logistical information and sensitive sites are always changing.

what s next
What’s Next
  • Firm up Consolidated efforts to manage volunteers.
  • Continue to identify specific response procedures unique to specific geo areas.
  • Identify Low Visibility Response Procedures (where possible) while maintaining safety.
slide57

Summary

  • Area Contingency Plans & Area Committee process provide for enhanced preparedness
  • Room for improvement always exists - planning underway to make ACPs even more useful
  • Electronic interactive versions of ACPs under development
  • ACPs interactive with state plans where compacts/MOAs exist (FL, CA, TX, EPA inland)
  • ACPs and hyperlinks to state plans, posted on USCG Homeport websites

Area Contingency Plans

General Observations

  • Planning Tool v. Response Tool
  • Environmentally Sensitive Area portions

praised as most valuable

  • Three-year NPREP exercise and ACP review/revision cycle now standardized
  • Excellent participation in Area Planning Committee process
  • Cumbersome documents in paper form
slide59

The Way Forward

  • Organize ACP program parallel to NRF/NIMS/ICS response management structure
  • Continue guidance outreach for standardized format w/maintenance of NIMS/ICS language
  • Explore future GIS applications with NOAA, state/local government, and private institutions
  • Harmonize NPREP with DHS Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) to exercise ACP
  • Increase involvement and participation by RRTs and industry players in PREP exercises.
