Briggs Gets Oil Spill Lead Contract for BP’s Forties Pipeline

Briggs Environmental Services has received a five-year contract from BP to act as its oil spill lead across the Forties Pipeline System (FPS) and to provide oil spill response services in the north of Scotland.

Under the contract, Briggs will provide specialist advice to BP in the event of an oil spill incident and support BP’s incident commander by assisting with the coordination of the response effort.

Briggs will also coordinate preparedness activities such as maintenance, training and exercises, the company explained.

As part of the contract, Briggs will also store BP-owned oil spill response equipment and materials, attend emergency call-outs in the event of an incident and participate in training sessions and exercises in the region.

The contract was awarded through a tender process and started on April 01, 2016, with the possibility of a five-year extension.

Pat Diamond, director of Briggs Environmental Services, said: “Environmental safety is of paramount importance to the Briggs Group and we are delighted that we have managed to successfully demonstrate our technical capability in providing oil spill response services to win this BP tender.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
