image RCP has developed Facility Response Plans and Integrated Contingency Plans for both large and small facilities throughout the US. RCP’s plans have been accepted by every federal agency with regards to the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA-90) planning jurisdiction, including the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Transportation / Office of Pipeline Safety, and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (formerly known as the MMS).

RCP has the expertise to update your Facility Response Plan, Integrated Contingency Plan, or Oil Spill Response Plan to include new guidance and lessons learned from recent incidents and natural disasters. We are very familiar with the necessary cross-references, indices, graphs and charts, and appropriate plan formats.

Each of these agencies has separate regulations that may vary in some respect from one to the next:

  • PHMSA (Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration) Facility Response Plans
  • DOT (49 CFR 194)
  • USCG (33 CFR 154)
  • EPA (40 CFR 112)
  • State agency and local contingency planning requirements
  • General Land Office
