Clearwater Oil Company, Ltd.
Big Bear Lease No. 2 Production Facility
SAMPLE Spill Prevention, Control, and
Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan
Proper equipment operation and maintenance; and
Procedures for draining rainwater from berms.
In order that there will be no misunderstanding on joint and respective duties and responsibilities to perform work in a safe manner, contractor personnel also receive instructions on the procedures outlined in this SPCC Plan. The instructions cover the contractor activities such as servicing a well or equipment associated with the well, such as pressure vessels.
All contractual agreements between Clearwater and contractors specifically state:
Personnel must, at all times, act in a manner to preserve life and property, and prevent pollution of the environment by proper use of the facility’s prevention and containment systems to prevent hydrocarbon and hazardous material spills. No pollutant, regardless of the volume, is to be disposed of onto the ground or water, or allowed to drain into the ground or water. Federal regulations impose substantial fines and/or imprisonment for willful pollution of navigable waters. Failure to report accidental pollution at this facility, or elsewhere, can be cause for equally severe penalties to be imposed by federal regulations. To this end, all personnel must comply with every requirement of this SPCC Plan, as well as taking necessary actions to preserve life, and property, and to prevent pollution of the environment. It is the contractor’s (or subcontractor’s) responsibility to maintain his equipment in good working order and in compliance with this SPCC Plan. The contractor (or subcontractor) is also responsible for the familiarity and compliance of his personnel with this SPCC Plan. Contractor and subcontractor personnel must secure permission from Clearwater’s Field Operations Manager before commencing any work on any facility. They must immediately advise the Field Operations Manager of any hazardous or abnormal condition so that the Field Operations Manager can take corrective measures.
