Oil and Chemical Spills

PTT recognizes its role in environmental conservation, particularly towards the vulnerable marine ecosystem. Therefore, PTT has prepared responses and emergency responses from oil and chemical spills. PTT firmly upholds this role, as it is fully aware that PTT’s operation has a wide range, complicated value chain, and involves a large number of personnel. The Group thus stipulate clear measures for both personnel and equipment standards. There are regular training for all relevant personnel to ensure all is able to immediately response to emergencies.

For personnel training, PTT has a full fledge emergency response plan for all operation sites on an annual basis. The trainings are collaborations with both internal and external agencies. There are equipment installed, such as gas leak detector, satellite valve controller via satellite in natural gas transmission system. Booms are installed at all areas of operations to prevent oil contamination beyond the boom, if there are spillages. Furthermore, PTT has also joined organization servicing oil spill cleanup, such as Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL) and Oil Industry Environmental Safety Group (IESG). This facilitates clean-up in cases of oil spillage, covering PTT Group’s operation areas across the globe.

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 of 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.
