Spill preparedness and response support since 1972.
2022 marks the 50th year that the petroleum industry and regulators have collaborated to develop an effective and reliable spill preparedness program.
WCSS member companies must sign an EQUIPMENT LEASE AGREEMENT prior to use whether in a standby, training or emergency situation. In the event of an emergency, equipment will not be withheld, though the company that has requested the equipment will be held accountable for the requirements outlined in the agreement.
Under Alberta Energy Regulator’s Directive 071 (Section 10) and Saskatchewan’s Directive S-01 (Section 2.3), WCSS Oil Spill Co-operative members (licensees) must have a representative attend the annual training exercise in the Co-operative where that member has operations.
