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.
