Emergency Response

Petrojam has developed emergency response plans and procedures which aim to control incidents that could result in personnel injury (both on and off site), and cause damage to facilities and the environment. The procedures determine how we respond to:

  • Fires and Explosions
  • Land and Marine Oil Spills
  • Hurricane and Floods
  • Civil Unrest
  • Earthquakes

All members of staff are required to serve as part of the emergency response teams. We therefore have a cadre of trained staff and the latest equipment to respond to all emergencies.
This equipment includes:

  • Fire-fighting
    • Two fire-fighting trucks
    • In house fire water system
    • Fire-fighting foam
    • Portable/hand held fire-fighting equipment
    • Fire entry suit and self-contained breathing apparatus
  • Oil Spill
    • Sorbent pads
    • Containment booms
    • Motor driven skimmers
