Spill prevention


Spill prevention

We are focused on preventing spills and, if a spill does occur, ensuring a rapid, comprehensive response.

In pursuit of our goal of zero spills to land and water, we continually develop and improve risk management, operations integrity, spill prevention processes and containment capabilities by:

  • Increasing spill awareness through training 
  • Learning from past incidents
  • Upgrading key equipment
  • Carrying out inspections and surveillance programs

See our oil and chemical spills data in the most recent Sustainability Report.
