Regulatory Requirements

Western, Central and Eastern GOM

oil spill response plans
Oil Spill Response Plans
  • Operators of oil facilities must submit OSRP to MMS
    • Western and Central GOM – Regional OSRP
    • Eastern GOM – Site-specific OSRP
nepa compliance
NEPA Compliance
  • Information for MMS to insure compliance with NEPA:
    • Storage capacity of tanks/production vessels on facility that store oil
    • Diesel oil supply vessels (other than fuel)
      • Size of vessel
      • Capacity
      • Frequency of transfer
      • Route from shore
nepa compliance1
NEPA Compliance
  • Support Vessels Fuel Tanks
    • No. in field (simultaneously)
    • Max fuel tank storage capacities
nepa compliance2
NEPA Compliance
  • If liquid hydrocarbons (including well tests) will be transported by means other than P/L
    • Transportation method
    • Transfer method
    • Capacity of transport vessel
    • Avg. volume of liquid hydrocarbons loaded
    • Avg. number of transfers/year
nepa compliance3
NEPA Compliance
  • Oil and synthetic based drilling fluids:

NEPA Compliance
  • Provide blowout scenario:
    • Estimated spill flow rate, volume, time frame
    • Potential for well to bridge over
    • Likelihood for surface intervention to stop blowout
