Clearwater Oil Company, Ltd.

Big Bear Lease No. 2 Production Facility

SAMPLE Spill Prevention, Control, and

Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan


All safety devices are tested quarterly by a third party inspector. The tests are recorded and the results are maintained with this Plan at Clearwater’s field office. Testing of the safety devices is conducted in accordance with guidelines API RP-14C published by the American Petroleum Institute, or in accordance with instructions from the device’s manufacturer. Written test procedures are kept at the offices of the third party testing company and are available upon request.

Twice a year, facility personnel drive to the pre-established response staging areas located at three different points along Big Bear Creek (see Oil Spill Contingency Plan in Appendix I) to ensure that the dirt/gravel roads are accessible using field vehicles and that the Oil Spill Contingency Plan can be implemented in the event of a discharge from flowlines reaching the Creek.
