Spill Management

Oil and Chemical Spills

Preparation for response and emergency response from oil and chemical contamination is another significant mission for the organization. PTT therefore determines both personnel and equipment standards in order to ensure that it will respond to events in all cases in a timely manner by setting up a full emergency plan for every area of PTT's operations annually with internal and external agencies. PTT also installs equipment such as gas leak detector, oil buoys in all operational areas at risk of oil spills, and satellite valve control systems in natural gas transmission systems. PTT has additionally become a member of organizations focused on oil spill clean-ups and responses, such as the Oil Spill Response & East Asia Response Limited (OSRL) and Oil Industry Environmental Safety Group (IESG), to provide support in case of oil spills that are located in various areas around the world.

In addition, the management of the environment after the occurrence of oil spills is of great importance in order to prevent and reduce environmental impacts. The scope covers setting up guidelines for assessing environmental impacts from oil spills in accordance with international standards in order to define measures to reduce and control environmental impacts, as well as establishing guidelines for the restoration of the environment to ensure that the ecosystems and biodiversity are restored to balance quickly.
