BSEE Verifies Response Equipment in Gulf of Mexico Region

FORT JACKSON, La. - Preparedness Analysts with BSEE’s Oil Spill Preparedness Division boarded the Louisiana Responder at Fort Jackson, Louisiana on July 14 to test the response readiness of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. 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.

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.
