                PORT OF ALBANY OIL SPILL CONTINGENCY PLAN                          SECTION 1



1.4.2     Staff and Contractors

          It is the responsibility of Staff and Contractors to:

          •   Report all oil spills (See Section 3.1).
          •   Take all steps necessary to safely prevent spills or limit the spread of spills
              that have occurred.

1.4.3     Other Agencies

          The roles and responsibilities of Government agencies and Port operators are
          detailed in WestPlan MOP (ref. WestPlan-MOP Section 5).

1.5 SCOPE OF THE PLAN

1.5.1     Area Covered

          This OSCP applies to all oil spills that occur within Port waters, i.e. King George
          Sound and Princess Royal Harbour (Figure 1.1).

          This OSCP may also be used in support of the DPI MEPU OSCP for spills within
          the Albany District but outside of the Port of Albany.

1.5.2     Oil Spill Scenarios

          This OSCP covers oil spills that may occur from all sources. The types of oil that
          could be spilt, and potential volumes, are provided in Table 1.2.

1.5.3     Chemical Spills

          Spills of non-oil noxious and hazardous substances are dealt with under the Port
          of Albany Emergency Response Plan.

          Outside of the Port, such spills are the responsibility of the WA Fire and
          Emergency Service (FES) and are dealt with in WestPlan-HAZMAT.

1.6 INTEGRATION WITH OTHER PLANS

          The Port of Albany OSCP is consistent with:

          •   Port of Albany Emergency Response Plan.
          •   The WA Marine Oil Pollution Emergency Management Plan
              (WestPlan-MOP).
          •   National Plan to Combat Pollution of the Sea by Oil and Other Noxious and
              Hazardous Substances (the “National Plan” or “NATPLAN”).
          •   AMOSPlan (AMOSC).

1.7 MAINTENANCE OF THE OSCP

              The Harbourmaster is responsible for revising the OSCP and for issuing
              updates to holders of controlled copies.

2.1 ADMINISTRATIVE ARRANGEMENTS

            Figure 2.1 illustrates the organisation of response preparedness.

2.1.1       National Plan

            Administrative arrangements under the National Plan are documented in the
            National Oil Spill Contingency Plan and also in WestPlan- MOP
            (ref. WestPlan-MOP Appendix B). Details can also be obtained from the
            AMSA website (www.amsa.gov.au).

2.1.2       WA Arrangements

            WA arrangements are detailed in Part B of WestPlan- MOP (ref. WestPlan-
            MOP Sections 4 to 6).

            The current identities and contact details of the current position holders are
            provided in the front of the Contact Directory in this OSCP (Appendix E).

2.1.3       Albany Marine Oil Pollution Response Committee

            The Albany Marine Oil Pollution Committee (AMOPC) is responsible for the
            review and maintenance of this OSCP and for maintaining marine oil pollution
            response preparedness.

            Members of the AMOPC may be called upon to fulfill IMT functions or roles
            during a response. Membership comprises:

            •   Harbourmaster.             •   Albany Port Authority representative.
            •   SES representative.        •   Council (Shire and Town) representative.
            •   CALM representative.       •   Regional Officer, DPI Transport.
            •   Police Liaison Officer     •   Oil industry local representative.

            The AMOPC meets at six monthly intervals.

2.2 LEVELS OF RESPONSE: RESPONSE TIERS

            Spill response is based on a number of levels, or Tiers (Table 2.1). Each Tier
            is defined according to the level of resources committed, support agencies
            and the agency assuming the role of Lead Combat Agency:

            Tier 1:   •   Small spills or remote spills of non-persistent oils.
                      •   Response is managed by the Responsible Party (the spiller) or
                          the Albany Port Authority.
                      •   Usually these are spills of less than 10 tonnes.
                      •   Potential for environmental harm is low.

2.3 SPILL RESPONSE ORGANISATION: THE INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM

            Operational control of all oil spill responses rests with the Incident
            Management Team (IMT) under the control of an Incident Controller (IC).

2.3.1       IMT Functions and Roles

            IMT functions and roles are outlined in Table 2.2. These functions are
            distributed to the IMT members as required.

2.3.2       Size and Structure

            Responsibility for determining the size and structure of a Tier 1 IMT rests with
            the nominated Albany Port Authority Incident Controller, who may consult the
            ERG Coordinator (contact DPI MEPU).

            A large response team is not required for a Tier 1 response or small Tier 2
            response and some people can be allocated a number of roles (Figure 2.2).

            A large response will require a large team and each function will be assigned
            to an individual or even a response Section, Unit or Team. Figure 2.3
            illustrates the distribution of functions, and the names of IMT members, for a
            major response.

2.3.3       Designated Tier 1 IMT Positions

            A number of functions are pre-assigned to personnel who will be activated for
            all spills in Port of Albany. Personnel nominated against these key IMT roles
            are listed in the Contact Directory (Appendix E).

2.4 RESPONSE SUPPORT

2.4.1       WA Plan Resources

            The ERG Coordinator will coordinate provision of WA and National Plan
            equipment (except that located at Albany) and human resources for any
            response at the Port of Albany.

            This includes provision of members of the WA Spill Response Team.

2.4.2       National Plan Resources

            Personnel from the National Response Team (NRT) are available from the
            Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA). This can be accessed through
            the ERG Coordinator. Additional support services are listed in Appendix B.

2.4.3       Industry Support: AMOSC

            Industry assistance is available through the Australian Marine Oil Spill Centre
            (AMOSC), an industry funded response facility based at North Corio Quay,
            Geelong, Victoria. AMOSC resources include:

            •   AMOSC spill response equipment.
            •   Oil company equipment based at various locations.
            •   Trained industry response (“Core Group”) personnel.

            Procedures for accessing oil industry assistance for a spill response, through
            AMOSC, are documented in “AMOSPlan”.

            Resources are available directly to member Companies at the request of one
            of the affected Oil Company’s “Authorising Officers”, or to Port Authorities and
            Government agencies through AMSA.

            Regional “Mutual Aid Contacts (MACs)” are also nominated to assist in the
            location and supply of local equipment and personnel (see Appendix E).

3.1 INITIATING THE RESPONSE

             Reporting and response activation consists of four procedures:

             •   Reporting of the incident (Figure 3.1 and Section 3.2).
             •   Assessment of the situation and determination of the appropriate level of
                 response (Section 3.3).
             •   Activation of the Incident Management Team (Section 3.4).
             •   Establishment of an Incident Control Centre (Section 3.5).

3.2 REPORTING PROCEDURES

             Reporting procedures are summarised in Figure 3.1.

3.2.1        Receiving External Reports

             Reports of oil spills or sightings of oil on the sea may come from a variety of
             sources. Personnel receiving an external report of a spill must:

             •   Obtain as many details of the incident as possible. Use Checklist shown
                 in Table 3.1 or a POLREP (Form REP 01 in Appendix D) as a guide.
             •   Immediately pass the report details to the Harbourmaster.

3.2.2        Staff and Contractors

             All Staff and Contractors must report spills, incidents that may result in a spill,
             or observations of oil on the sea, to the nearest Supervisor or Person in
             Charge (PIC).

             The Supervisor/PIC must report the incident and all known details to the
             Harbourmaster by telephone or radio.

3.2.3        Harbourmaster

             Upon receipt of a spill report the Harbourmaster will:

             •   Obtain all information available from the observer
                 (Use Procedure APA-A in Appendix A or a POLREP Form REP 01).
             •   Prepare a POLREP and send to:
                    - APA, CEO.
                    - Duty Officer at DPI MEPU.
                    - AMSA, EPG.

             Note: The DPI MEPU Duty Officer may notify AMSA. AMSA should be
             notified (via POLREP) of any spill of oil or chemicals to the sea regardless of
             the potential Tier of the response. This will ensure that personnel and
             equipment are on standby should the incident escalate.

3.3 ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES: DETERMINING THE RESPONSE TIER

             There are no rules for the determination of the response Tier. The
             fundamental consideration is whether the Port of Albany Authority can
             manage the response unaided (Tier 1), or whether additional resources are
             needed (Tier 2 or Tier3).

3.3.1        Responsibility

             The Harbourmaster, in consultation with the APA CEO, will determine
             whether Port of Albany Corporation resources can manage the incident
             (i.e. response is Tier 1).

             The APA CEO will notify the ERG Coordinator of the assessment. The ERG
             Coordinator will either confirm this assessment or inform the APA CEO that
             the spill requires a greater than Tier 1 response. In the latter case, the ERG
             Coordinator may appoint an IC or request the Albany Port Authority to
             continue in the IC role until relieved by a DPI MEPU nominee.

3.3.2        Procedure

             Guidelines for determining the response Tier are provided in Figure 3.2.

3.4 ACTIVATION OF THE INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM

3.4.1        Responsibility

             The nominated APA Incident Controller (IC) for Tier 1 responses is the
             Harbourmaster or nominated alternate.

             The IC will mobilise IMT members via telephone.

3.4.2        Scale of Call-out

             The IC will mobilize sufficient equipment and personnel resources required to
             manage the response.

3.4.3        Muster Point

             IMT personnel will muster at the nominated ICC (see Section 3.5) unless
             otherwise directed by the IC.

3.5 ESTABLISHING THE INCIDENT CONTROL CENTRE

3.5.1        Location

             The ICC will be located in the APA Administration Building. For small scale or
             short duration responses, the Boardroom will be used. For larger scale
             responses, the Main Office Area will be utilised.

4.1 THE ROLE OF THE INCIDENT CONTROLLER

             The IC is responsible for the overall planning and management of the
             incident response and control of the Incident Management Team (IMT).

             The functions of the IC are set out in IMT Checklist APA 1 in Appendix A.

4.2 ESTABLISHING THE INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM

4.2.1        Responsibility

             The IC is responsible for activating the initial IMT and for allocating functions
             to each IMT member.

             Each appointed Officer, Manager or Coordinator must identify their own
             staffing needs and inform the IC of the required level of resources.

             Once approved by the IC, each Officer/Coordinator must appoint staff or
             request allocation of staff through the Logistics Officer or person allocated
             the logistics function.

             Staffing requirements should be reassessed by Officers/Coordinators after
             each planning cycle.

             Note: It is important that sufficient staff, including support staff, are allocated
             to the IMT.

4.2.2        Registration and Induction

             All non-Albany Port Authority IMT members must be registered with the
             Finance and Administration Section.

             All IMT members and visitors must be given oil spill response Health and
             Safety induction (ref. WestPlan-MOP Appendix J).

4.3 PLANNING PROCESS

             Planning of the response is the responsibility of the IC but involves all key
             IMT personnel and advisers

4.3.1        Information Inputs to the Planning Process

             The key to effective planning is the acquisition and the application of
             information.

             Figure 4.1 illustrates the information inputs of the key IMT members into the
             planning process and demonstrates the need to involve all key IMT members
             in the process.

                                          Incident Action Plan



4.3.2        The Incident Planning Cycle

             The planning process is ongoing and involves a number of procedures:

             •   Initial Planning (Briefing) Meeting.
             •   Development of the Incident Action Plan.
             •   Execution of the Plan.
             •   Feedback to Planning Section (collection and analysis of information).
             •   Ongoing Planning Meetings (to revise/update the Incident Action Plan).

4.3.3        Briefing

             Planning Meetings should be preceded by a briefing, during which the IC, or
             other person(s) should detail:

             •   Current situation;
                    - Spill location and size.
                    - Combat and Support Agencies.
                    - Response Tier and resources mobilised.
                    - Current shorelines and resources impacted.
             •   Predicted situation;
                    - Trajectory.
                    - Resources at risk/ potential effects.

4.3.4        Planning Meeting Phase I

             During the first phase of a planning meeting the IC will, in consultation with
             key IMT personnel:

             •   State Aim (or Policy) of the response (initial Planning Meeting only).
             •   Develop and rank response objectives, based on protection priorities.
             •   Develop Strategies for each Objective.
             •   Identify and obtain permits required for strategies (e.g. dispersant use).

4.3.5        Planning Meeting Phase II

             Once Strategies have been determined, Tactics (Methods) must be
             developed:

             •   The IC will nominate an IMT member to:
                     - Document Aim, Objectives and Strategies i.e. prepare a Draft
                       Incident Action Plan.
                     - Distribute Draft Incident Action Plan to Key IMT/Section Officers.
                       (Note; in a Tier 2/3 response this would be the Planning Officer).
             •   The Logistics Officer will develop a Communications Sub-Plan.
             •   The Media Liaison Officer will revise (or prepare) the Media Sub-Plan.
             •   The OH&S Coordinator will prepare an OH&S Sub-Plan.
             •   If wildlife is oiled, the PWC will develop a Wildlife Sub-Plan.

4.3.6        Planning Meeting Phase III

             Once Tactics and Sub-Plans have been developed they are compiled to form
             the Incident Action Plan.

             Resource and logistical needs are then finalised and the IAP is implemented.

             Issues that should be considered in this final phase include:

             •   The need for Advanced Operations Centre(s).
             •   The need for, and location of, Staging Areas.
             •   Compilation of a list of resource needs, i.e. communications, equipment
                 and personnel.

4.3.7        Other Actions

             Following each Planning Meeting a designated IMT member will:

             •   Prepare Resource Requisition Forms.
             •   Prepare a SITREP (Form REP 02) for distribution (Appendix D).

             These and other forms are also provided in WestPlan-MOP (ref. WestPlan-
             MOP Appendix E).

4.4 DEPLOYMENT

             Additional facilities may need to be established in the field. These may be
             required for on site management (Advanced Operations Centres), the
             Deployment of equipment or personnel (Staging Areas) or for the provision of
             services (e.g. Decontamination Centres, canteens etc.).

             Note It is essential that effective communications between the ICC and AOC/
             Staging Areas are established and maintained.

             Note: The person nominated to manage an AOC or Staging Area should be
             appropriate for the function of the facility.

4.5 MEDIA LIAISON

4.5.1        Responsibility

             For a Tier 1 response all media management is the responsibility of the APA
             CEO who must authorise all media releases.

             The APA CEO must authorise all written media releases prior to release.

             For Tier 2 or Tier 3 responses, the ERG Coordinator, or WA MPC if activated,
             will assume this responsibility, and must authorise all media releases relating
             to the incident response.

4.5.2        Media Liaison Officer

             The IC may appoint a Media Liaison Officer (MLO) to prepare an incident
             Media Sub-Plan and to advise the IC on media.

             The WA Media Sub-Plan is provided in WestPlan-MOP (ref. WestPlan-MOP
             Appendix I).

4.6 ENVIRONMENTAL AND SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT

4.6.1        Local Environmental Advice

             Local environmental advice will be provided by the DEWCP or CALM
             (see Appendix E).

4.6.2        WA Environmental and Scientific Coordinator

             The WA Environmental and Scientific Coordinator (ESC) provides
             environmental and scientific advice to the IC or WA SC and will:

             • Liaise with the DEWCP and CALM regarding environmental sensitivities
               and natural resources.
             • Assist the Waste Management Coordinator in identifying temporary waste
               storage sites and on site waste management.
             • Obtain scientific support and data from AMSA and other support agencies.

4.7 INFORMATION CONTROL

             It is important that all information is recorded and transmitted quickly and
             accurately.

             For Tier 1 responses this task may be assigned to an Administrative
             Assistant (see Figure 2.2).

             In larger responses this will be assigned to the Finance and Administration
             Section (see Figure 2.3).

             Documentation and transmission of information relies on the use of:

             •   Forms.
             •   Status Boards.
             •   Wall Maps.
             •   Effective briefings.
             •   Issue of bulletins and press releases. These are prepared by the Media
                 Liaison Officer (see Section 4.6).

4.7.1        Forms

             The use of Forms is detailed in WestPlan-MOP (ref. WestPlan-MOP
             Appendix E) and a number of Forms are provided. Essential forms are
             provided in Appendix D of this OSCP.

             Forms are kept in the Emergency Management Bookcase in the red file.

             Note: In most spills very few forms are required. For larger or more
             prolonged response the number of forms required is greater. The forms
             provided in NT MOP Manual are a resource and their use is not compulsory.
             Like all other resources available, they should be used if required and
             modified as required.

4.7.2        Status Boards

             Status Boards are provided in WestPlan-MOP (ref. WestPlan-MOP Appendix
             E). Laminated copies are stored in the designated spill response locker in
             Store No. 2.

             Information should be written on Status Boards only by a designated person
             who will record existing data before entering updated information.

4.8.3        Wall Maps

             Wall maps, like Status Boards can display much information.

             The information on these must also be recorded before being updated. This
             can be done using Polaroid or digital cameras to capture the data or by
             copying information onto smaller photocopied maps

4.8.4        Briefings

             Briefings are initiated and conducted by the IC. In larger tiered responses
             Section Officers and Unit Coordinators may also need to hold regular
             briefings.

             Guidelines for IC briefings are provided in Appendix A, Procedure APA-B.

5.1 THE OPERATIONS FUNCTION

             The Operations function encompasses all “field” operations in the response
             (see Figure 2.3 and Table 2.2):

             •   Marine response (Section 7).
             •   Shoreline response (Section 8).
             •   Aerial response (Section 6 and Section 7.6.3).
             •   Health and Safety (Section 5.4).
             •   Wildlife (Section 5.5).
             •   Waste Management (Section 9).

5.2 RESPONSIBILITY

             For a Tier 2 or Tier 3 response, an Operations Officer will be appointed
             (see Checklist APA-3 in Appendix A).

             Procedures which need to be implemented by the Operations Officer include:

             • Documentation/information management (Section 4.7).
             • Determination of operational priorities including allocation of resources to
               the various Units.
             • Implementation of induction procedures (Section 5.4.2).
             • Ensuring effective field site control (Procedure APA-C in Appendix A).
             • Provision of adequate levels of supervision.
             • Participation in the planning process (see Section 4.3).
             • Ensuring that adequate communications are provided.

5.3 PRIORITIES

             The main response strategies are indicated in Figure 5.1 and are, in order of
             preference:

             •   Natural dissipation of the slick at sea.
             •   Marine response:
                    - Containment and recovery.
                    - Use of dispersants.
             •   Shoreline protection.
             •   Shoreline Cleanup.
             •   Natural weathering of oil and recovery of impacted shorelines.

5.4 HEALTH AND SAFETY

5.4.1        Responsibility

             The Incident Controller is responsible for ensuring that response activities are
             carried out safely (see Checklist APA-4 in Appendix A).

             The IC may appoint an OH&S Coordinator to manage Occupational Health
             and Safety.

             The OH&S Coordinator will generally report to the Operations Officer.

             For prolonged responses the OH&S Coordinator should develop an OH&S
             Sub-Plan (ref. WestPlan-MOP Appendix J).

             In the event of a large spill the IC may appoint a Site Safety Officer to
             oversee the implementation of the OH&S Sub-Plan.

5.4.2        Health and Safety Inductions

             The OH&S Coordinator is responsible for providing response-specific health
             and safety inductions for all IMT personnel.

5.4.3        Material Safety Data Sheets

             All personnel handling chemical products should be issued with the relevant
             Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The OH&S Coordinator, or other
             delegated person must ensure that this is done and that personnel
             understand the correct materials handling procedures and personnel
             protective equipment needed.

5.5 WILDLIFE RESPONSE

5.5.1        Responsibility

             Managing the cleanup, care and rehabilitation of oiled wildlife is the
             responsibility of CALM.

             The IC, or nominated officer, should contact CALM in the event that oiled
             wildlife is observed or considered likely.

5.5.2        Wildlife Response Unit

             Wildlife response requires a high level of training.

             A Wildlife Unit may be established to undertake this function.

             Note: Wildlife response requires a high level of training and must be directed
             and supervised by CALM officers.

6.1 RESPONSIBILITY

            Monitoring (or surveillance) of slicks is usually undertaken as part of both the:

            •   Planning function; modelling and other predictions, and
            •   Operations; field surveillance and sampling.

6.2 MONITORING OBJECTIVES

            Monitoring may be undertaken to determine the:

            •   Trajectory,
            •   Volumes and
            •   Weathering state of oil slicks.

            This is done to predict potential impact on sensitive resources and to gauge
            suitability of response strategies.

6.3 STRATEGIES

6.3.1       Use of Vessels

            Vessels can be used to monitor an oil slick but estimation of slick size can be
            difficult. Vessels should be used to:

            • Confirm shoreline oil impact in areas not clearly seen from the air
              (e.g. mangrove fringes), and to
            • Collect samples of the oil.

6.3.2       Use of Aircraft

            Aerial surveillance should be commissioned by the nominated Incident Controller.

            In a Tier2/3 response aerial surveillance will be commissioned by the Incident
            Controller or other nominated IMT member.

            A trained observer must be present on surveillance aircraft to identify oil on the
            water or shoreline and to accurately report location to the Incident Controller.

            Photographs should be taken to aid later assessments.

            For all surveillance tasks:

            •   Aircraft should have good downward visibility (e.g. fixed wing aircraft with
                an over-fuselage wing, or helicopters).
            •   Pilots or observers should be provided with information on the likely
                location of the slick (e.g. OSTM output).
            •   If acting in support of marine response, aircraft should be equipped with
                radios that allow direct communications with vessels (or spray aircraft).

6.4 SLICK TRAJECTORY

6.4.1         Computer Models

              Movement and behaviour of an oil slick may be estimated using the
              computerised oil spill trajectory model available from AMSA (see Appendix B).

6.4.2         Manual Estimates

              Spill trajectory can be estimated by adding the vector of current velocity to
              approximately 3% of the wind velocity. This is illustrated in Figure 6.1.

                                                             of the spill (origin).

                                                             flowing (i.e. Length = 0.03 x
                                                             1800m x wind speed in knots).
5. Draw a line from the origin to the end of Vw. This is oil movement in 1 hour (Vo).

6.5 ESTIMATING SLICK VOLUMES

              Estimates of spill volumes can often be made on the basis of the cause and
              duration of the spill.

6.5.1         Oil at Sea

              It is also possible to estimate the volume of a slick on the basis of its appearance
              at sea, and the area covered (see Figure 6.2 and Table 6.1).

6.5.2         Oil on Shorelines: Aerial Survey
              Information obtained is generally limited to:

              •   Location of oily bands.
              •   Length of beach oiled.
              •   Width of oily band.
              •   Presence of reefs or other inshore hazards.
              •   Presence of access roads (this needs ground-truthing).

                         Figure 6.2 Calculating Slick Volumes at Sea

 The surface area of the slick can be estimated by:

 1. Flying the length and breadth of the slick and equating the time taken to fly over the
    slick and the aircraft speed.
 2. Calculating the slick area (i.e. length x breadth), and
 3. Multiplying the area by the percentage of the slick that is oil (i.e. not clean water).
 4. The areas covered by the various oil thicknesses should be calculated.
 5. Calculate oil volumes using Table 6.1.

                               500m            Example:

                                               5km x 0.5km = 0.75 sq km.

                                               40% of slick is black oil. So area of black oil is 40%
        1500m                                  of 0.75 sq km = 0.3 sq km.

                                               Using Table 6.1, volume in black oil is
                                               approximately: 2 x 0.3 = 0.6 cubic metres.

                                               60% of slick is sheen. So area of sheen is 60% of
                                               0.75 sq.km = 0.45 sq km.

                                               Using Table 5.1, volume of oil in the sheen is
                                               approximately:
                                               0.05 x 0.45 = 0.0225 cubic metres.

 Note: The sheen contains very little oil and estimated volume, in this example, is about 0.6 cubic
 metres of oil or oily emulsion.

6.5.3          Shorelines: Ground Survey

               Ground surveys are required to determine the thickness of the oil (i.e. above the
               beach surface), and the depth of penetration of oil into the beach.

7.1 MARINE RESPONSE METHODS

            A number of marine response methods are available:

            •   Containment and recovery (Section 7.5).
            •   Application of dispersants from vessels (Section 7.6).
            •   Physical breakup of the slick (Section 7.7).
            •   Monitoring only, i.e. relying on natural weathering processes (Section 6).
            •   Shoreline protection (Section 7.9).

            The effectiveness of these methods can be limited by oil type and weathering,
            weather and sea state, or logistics (see Tables 7.3 to Table 7.7).

            Note: The Tables provide in this Section are guidelines only. Each spill should
            be assessed and the effectiveness of methods and equipment should be
            monitored throughout the response.

7.2 IMMEDIATE RESPONSE

            A rapid response can restrict the spread of oil and facilitate recovery of oil and
            protection of the environment.

            Note: Immediate response actions may be initiated by the Supervisor or
            person-in-charge. The Harbourmaster must be informed as soon as possible.

7.3 PRIORITIES

            A number of high priority areas have been identified and these are shown on
            the maps in Appendix C. It is should be noted that containment and recovery
            strategies alone may not prevent oil entering these areas or impacting
            associated shorelines. Additional shoreline protection methods may be
            required (see Section 7.9).

            Response priorities for the various oils are provided in Table 7.1.

7.4 HEALTH AND SAFETY ISSUES

7.4.1       Volatile Oils

            Spills of volatile (Group I) oils, such as motor spirit (petrol), must be handled
            with care. Personnel should not attempt to contain or recover such oils unless
            the site has been declared safe by the Supervisor in charge, or by
            Harbourmaster.

            Before deploying personnel or equipment close to these spills, the atmosphere
            should be tested by qualified person using a “combustible gas-oxygen
            analyser”.

7.5 CONTAINMENT AND RECOVERY

7.5.1             Component Methods

                  In obtaining and assigning equipment it is essential that a balance is achieved
                  between:

                  •   Targeting of the oil (aerial support).
                  •   Containment (boom deployment).
                  •   Recovery (skimmers).
                  •   Temporary waste storage (on-deck storage, dracones, barges etc.).
                  •   Waste transport and onshore waste receiving capacity.

                  Procedures for deciding on suitable method are illustrated in Figure 5.1

                  Caution: Fresh, volatile oils should not be contained close to source due to

                  safety of the area has been established.

7.5.3             Temporary Waste Storage

                  Marine storage containers are listed in Appendix B. It is important that the
                  time taken to fill, transport, empty and re-deploy these is calculated
                  throughout the response.

7.6 USE OF DISPERSANTS

7.6.1          Approval for Use

               Dispersants may only be applied after approval has been given by the
               Harbourmaster (or Incident Controller) Permission will be based on the
               Guidelines for the Use of Dispersants (ref. WestPlan Appendix L).

               Note: Dispersants may be used immediately to reduce a fire/explosion risk
               posed by spilt oil.

7.6.2          Requirements: Vessels

               • Vessels equipped with appropriate spray booms.
               • Spotter aircraft, to direct the vessel towards the most concentrated oil and
                 to report on effectiveness.
               • Effective communications between vessels and spotter aircraft.

7.6.3          Aerial Spraying of Dispersants

               Aerial spraying equipment is available for larger-scale responses. Available
               resources include:

               •   Fixed Wing Aircraft from the National Plan contractors (see Appendix B
                   “Dispersant: Aircraft”).
               •   Helicopter spray bucket, available via DPI MEPU (see Appendix E).

7.6.4          Constraints

               Vessels spraying dispersants are generally restricted to:

               •   Sea states of less than 4 for vessels, 5 for aircraft (Table 7.2).
               •   Winds of less than 22 knots for vessels, 27 for aircraft (Table 7.2).
               •   Non- viscous oils (<2,000 cSt.).
               •   Persistent (non Group I) oils.

7.6.5        Health and Safety Issues

             Due consideration should be given to safety when handling dispersants.
             Personnel must be familiar with instructions on the safe use of dispersants and
             be given the relevant Material Safety Data Sheets (ref. WestPlan-MOP).

             Caution: Vessel Masters must ensure that crews are not exposed to
             dispersants sprayed from the vessel or from aircraft.

             Caution: Dispersants should not be used to wash skin or clothing.

7.7 PHYSICAL BREAKUP OF SLICKS

             Thin films of oil can be physically dispersed by agitating the sea surface using
             support vessels' propeller wash.

             The use of this method is constrained by:

             • The size of the slick. It is not feasible to treat large spills.
             • Oil volatility (flash point) and consequent personnel and vessel safety.
             • Light, volatile (Group I) oils will dissipate quickly and should not need to
               be treated in this way.
             • The potential for some oils to emulsify. Heavy fuel oils and lubricating oils
               may emulsify if subject to prop-wash.

7.8 OTHER METHODS

7.8.1        In Situ Burning

             In situ burning is the process of controlled burning contained oil at sea. This
             may be considered when oil can be contained but recovery, transport or
             disposal is not possible. Constraints to this method are:

             • Oil needs to be contained (e.g. by booms).
             • The oil slick must be thick (i.e. at least 2-3mm thick).
             • Oil should be unweathered. Weathered, emulsified or heavy oils need to
               be ignited at higher temperatures and will need accelerants.
             • Fire-proof booms are not currently held in Australia.
             • Burnt residues must be recovered and disposed of.
             • Smoke produced is undesirable in populated areas.

7.9 SHORELINE PROTECTION

            Inshore or onshore protection methods should be initiated if:

            •   Persistent oil is moving towards the shore or sensitive areas (ref Table
                7.6), and
            •   Marine strategies cannot prevent impact on shorelines, and
            •   The shoreline, or associated fauna, flora or heritage resources, will be
                harmed by the oil.
            •   Cleanup is not possible, or
            •   Cleanup will not prevent or reduce damage to an acceptable level.

            Methods include:

            •   Diversion booming to either deflect oil from a protected shoreline or to
                collect oil onto a low sensitivity shore.
            •   Exclusion booming to prevent oil entering areas.
            •   Shoreline barriers such as sandbag, sand or earth dams or barriers along
                the shore.
            •   Use of sorbents to protect beach surface or associated fauna.

            Other methods such as chemical treatment or pre-application of dispersants
            are not recommended.

            General guidelines for shoreline protection methods are provided in Table 7.6.

8.1 SHORELINE RESPONSE ORGANISATION

             The Shoreline Unit undertakes shoreline assessment and cleanup strategies
             and is under the direction of a nominated Shoreline Coordinator.

             An indicative Shoreline Unit organisation is shown below (Figure 8.1).

8.2 RESPONSIBILITIES

             The Authority or Agency responsible for the shoreline must be advised of a
             shoreline impact and the intention to clean.

             This Agency must be consulted, and preferably be involved in, the planning of
             shoreline cleanup.

             For vacant crown land and invested reserves the authority will be the Local
             Authority , CALM or other designated authority.

             Authorities may exercise field control of shoreline cleanup within their
             jurisdictions.

             The Incident Controller, will determine response priorities based on
             environmental advice provided by shoreline authorities, Government
             Agencies, other advisers and the Oil Spill Response Atlas (see Appendix B).

8.3 SHORELINE RESPONSE STRATEGIES

             A number of shoreline response strategies are available (Table 8.1), but
             shorelines should be assessed to see whether these are suitable. This will
             depend on:

             •   Rate and likelihood of natural cleaning.
             •   Access for personnel and machinery.
             •   Nature and distribution of the oil.
             •   Shoreline character.
             •   Availability of personnel and machinery.
             •   Safety issues.
             •   Environmental sensitivity to oil and cleanup methods.

             The application of these methods on Albany shorelines is outlined in Sections
             8.4 to 8.14.

8.4 NATURAL RECOVERY

             Oiled shorelines may be left to naturally recover if:

             •    They cannot be cleaned due to lack of access or other factors.
             •    Cleaning will not result in any net environmental benefit, i.e.,
                     - Cleaning will cause more damage than residual oil.
                     - Recovery of affected biological communities will not be speeded up
                       by cleaning.communities.
             •    Weathering or natural removal of the oil is expected to be rapid.

                      Table 8.2 Use of Natural Recovery Method

   Shoreline Type        •   Can be used on any shoreline subject to the following
                             constraints.
   Constraints           •   Not suitable for public beaches or shorelines used by sensitive
                             fauna (e.g. birds).
                         •   Consent of landowners is required.
   Application           •   Monitoring may be required for persistent (non-Group I) oils.
                         •   Safety warnings/sign-posts should be used.
   Resource              •   Personnel and transport for erection of signposts.

8.5 MANUAL REMOVAL OF OIL AND OILY DEBRIS

             Removal of oil and oily debris using manual labour is an efficient but slow
             method, applicable to most shoreline types. This method also tends to result
             in better selection of oiled substrate and consequently less waste than
             mechanical methods.

                     Table 8.3 Use of Manual Cleanup Method

   Shoreline Type       •   Can be used on any shoreline subject to the following
                            constraints.
   Constraints          •   Bedrock and boulder shorelines should be assessed for safety
                            before deploying cleanup teams.
                        •   This is a slow method and not suitable for use if the extent of
                            oiling is great.
   Application          •   Close supervision of cleanup teams is essential.
                        •   Work-site control should be established
                            (Appendix A, Checklist C)
   Resource             •   Approx. 20 persons/km worked/day (2 teams).
   Requirements         •   2 Shoreline Cleanup Team Leaders
                        •   22 sets overalls, gloves, hats, boots.
                        •   Shovels/wheelbarrows/rakes etc as required.
                        •   Suitable waste storage and transport
                            (e.g. up to 500 plastic bags/km/day).
                        •   Transport as required.
                        •   Site support equipment.

8.6 USE OF SORBENTS TO COLLECT LIQUID OIL

             Loose sorbents or sorbent mats can be used to facilitate the manual or
             mechanical removal of liquid oil from most shoreline types. They may also be
             applied to oiled areas to reduce slippery conditions, e.g. on jetties, seawalls
             or boat ramps.

                     Table 8.4 Use of Sorbents on Shorelines

   Shoreline Type       •   Can be used on any but care is needed for shorelines adjacent to
                            shallow corals (see below)
   Constraints          •   Oily sorbent materials should not be allowed to wash into coral
                            areas.
                        •   See Table 8.3 if used with manual cleanup.
                        •   See Table 8.5 if used with mechanical cleanup.
   Application          •   Close supervision of cleanup teams is essential in order to
                            prevent over-application.
   Resource             •   Sorbent material (see Appendix B).
   Requirements


             A number of sorbent materials are available on site, or can be improvised
             from available materials. Table 8.5 lists some of these together with the
             effectiveness of each.

8.7 MECHANICAL REMOVAL OF OIL AND OILY DEBRIS

                Mechanical cleanup is the preferred cleanup for extensively oiled sandy
                shorelines.

                This method tends to result in the removal of clean substrate also and close
                supervision is required. Generally, if > 2cm of sediment is removed it is best
                to seek expert advice (see Appendix E).

                The shoreline should be reworked so that the profile after cleaning
                approximates what it was prior to cleanup.

              Table 8.6 Use of Mechanical Removal Methods on Shorelines

   Shoreline Type            Not suitable for use on:
                             • Bedrock or boulders.
                             • Mud or silts.
                             • Shorelines dominated by sensitive fauna (bird nesting) or flora
                                 (seagrass/mangroves/saltmarsh).
   Constraints               In addition to the above:
                             • Access and sediment load bearing capacity.
                             • Fluid oils may not be amenable to recovery.
                             • Recovery of buried oil may be difficult or result in the removal of
                                 too much sediment (1).
   Application               • Clean parallel to shoreline.
                             • Ensure vehicles do not pass over oily sediments.
   Resource                  • Grader, front-end loader and truck (for waste transport).
   Requirements              • Fuel (allow 20-25 litres/hr/vehicle).
                             • Manual cleanup support team; 3-4 people, Team Leader and
                                 personal protective equipment.

8.8 VACUUM RECOVERY

             Vacuum recovery is suitable for the recovery of liquid oils and wet debris from
             most types of shoreline provided that access is available.

         Table 8.7 Use of Vacuum Recovery of Liquid oil from Shorelines

   Shoreline Type        •   Any except steep inclines and cliffs.
                         •   Not recommended for pebble beaches unless oil is associated
                             with loose debris (i.e. pebbles will be removed with the oil unless
                             the method is used with care).
   Constraints           •   Not to be used if the oil is volatile e.g. fresh diesel. Not to be
                             used on Group I oils (e.g. motor spirit at any time).
                         •   On some shorelines this method may result in the removal of
                             large volumes of water along with the oil. This may pose waste
                             problems.
   Application           •   Liquid oil may be scraped into pits for ease of collection. These
                             must be cleaned before backfilling.
   Resource              •   Vacuum truck. See Appendix E.

8.9 SEDIMENT REWORKING

             Reworking course substrates (grit, pebbles or cobbles) will facilitate natural
             cleaning by wave action.

             Although slow, this method is very efficient in terms of the commitment of
             labour and equipment.

            Table 8.8 Use of Sediment Reworking Method on Shorelines

   Shoreline Type        •   High to moderate energy cobble and pebble beaches only.
   Constraints           •   Not to be used if the oil is fresh and liquid, and oiling is heavy (oil
                             removal should be slow and oil released should be weathered).
   Application           •   Method A: Oil stained sediment is pushed into the “surf zone foe
                             cleaning by wave action (Sediment may be reworked a number
                             of times), or
                         •   Method B: Oil is left on the surface so that wave action can clean
                             off surface oil. When clean, the surface can be “tilled” to bring
                             underlying oiled sediments to the surface to be cleaned by wave
                             action. This process should be repeated until the beach is clean.
                         •   Method C: Pebble beaches can be reworked using high-
                             pressure seawater (see Section 8.10).
   Resource              •   Method A: One front-end loader or bulldozer.
   Requirements          •   Method B: Tractor and tiller, or grader.
                         •   Method C: See Table 8.9.

8.10 LOW PRESSURE WASHING/FLUSHING

             Washing methods can be used for all oil types and are best suited to
             shorelines with substrates of pebble size or larger, but may be applied to
             sand beaches with care. Low pressure washing can also be applied to
             mangrove, saltmarsh and shallow corals provided that:

             •    Run-off can be prevented from entering clean areas.
             •    Cleanup teams do not damage the area.

          Table 8.9 Use of Low Pressure Washing Methods on Shorelines

   Shoreline Type       •   Pebble or rocky shoreline (cobble to bedrock).
                        •   Stable sands and muds, -with care.
   Constraints          •   Oily run-off must be collected using inshore booms and skimmers.
                        •   Care must be taken not to wash surface oils into clean underlying
                            sediments.
                        •   Oily runoff must not pass over clean shoreline unless enough
                            water is applied to prevent adhesion of oil to clean sediments (i.e.
                            deluge/flushing).
   Application          •   Wash oil from top of beach to lower levels using moderate
                            pressure. If lower intertidal zones are unoiled, this may need to be
                            done on elevated tides only.
                        •   Irrigate beach with large volumes of low-pressure seawater.
                        •   Deploy booms and skimmers to collect oily run-off.
   Resource             •   Pump: 30-50psi @ 200-500 litres/min (12-30 cubic m/hr).
   Requirements         •   Hoses: Flexible hose (e.g. fire hose) for spot-washing
                                      Hose or pipe for irrigation.
                        •   Inshore boom (250-300m), anchors etc.
                        •   Skimmer.

8.11 HIGH PRESSURE WASHING

             High pressure washing methods can be used for all oil types but should not
             be used on small substrates (smaller than pebble). Pebble shorelines should
             be cleaned with care.

         Table 8.10 Use of High pressure Washing Methods on Shorelines

   Shoreline Type       •  Any well drained rocky shore (bedrock to pebble).
   Constraints          •  As per Table 8.9.
   Application          •   Wash oil from top of beach to lower. If lower intertidal zones are
                           unoiled, this may need to be done on elevated tides only.
                        • Deploy booms and skimmers to collect oily run-off.
                        Pebble beaches only:
                        • Pebble can be reworked/pushed down the beach into the shallow
                           subtidal and then washed with the high-pressure water-stream.
                        • Pebble can then be reworked/pushed back up the beach. This
                           method is suitable for light oils and non-viscous oils.
   Resource             • Pump: 100-1000psi @ 20-100 litres/min (1-6 cubic m/hr).
   Requirements         • Hoses: Flexible hose (e.g. fire hose).
                        • Inshore boom (250-300m), anchors etc.
                        • Skimmer.
                        • Eye protection for cleanup personnel.

8.12 USE OF CHEMICAL CLEANING AGENTS

             Use of chemical cleaning agents is recommended only when it is necessary
             to rapidly remove oil from otherwise difficult to clean shorelines.

             Chemical agents available are dispersants. Degreasers should not be used.

                     Table 8.10 Use of Chemical Cleaning Agents

   Shoreline Type        •   Most applicable to bedrock and artificial structures such as
                             seawalls and boat ramps.
                         •   May be used on other shoreline types with extreme care, and
                             with environmental advice.
   Constraints           •   Not suitable for use on vegetated shorelines (mangroves,
                             saltmarshes) or on, or near, corals.
                         •   Oily run-off cannot be contained and recovered. Do not use near
                             sensitive inshore communities.
                         •   Health and safety procedures to be followed (consult MSDS).
   Application           •   May be sprayed neat or diluted.
                         •   If tidal flushing is restricted, use hoses to wash shorelines after
                             application (20 - 60 mins after application).
   Resource              •   Dispersant (see Appendix B).
   Requirements          •   Back-pack spray packs (see Appendix B).

8.13 SAND BLASTING AND STEAM CLEANING

             These methods can be damaging to structures and substrates being cleaned
             and will remove all plants and animals that are living on the substrate.
             Consequently they are recommended only for public artificial shorelines
             (jetties, boat) where slippery oil could pose a safety risk.

                 Table 8.12 Use of Sand Blasting and Steam Cleaning

   Shoreline Type        •   Artificial structures.
   Constraints           •   Not to be used on natural shorelines, particularly if
                             vegetation or animals present.
                         •   Steam cleaning is not suitable for use on fresh volatile
                             Group I oils (motor spirit). Group II oils (diesel) should be
                             left to weather.
   Application           •   Used by skilled operator under close supervision.
   Resource              •   Cleaning unit.
   Requirements          •   Sorbents or other means of collecting runoff.
                         •   See Appendix B.

8.14 OTHER METHODS

             A number of other cleanup methods have been used, and may be suggested
             during an incident. These are discussed briefly below.

8.14.1       Bioremediation

             Bioremediation is the artificial stimulation of the natural breakdown of oil by
             bacteria. The most applied method involves the addition of high nitrogen/
             phosphate fertilizers to the oiled shoreline. Degradation is a slow process
             and should not be regarded as a short-term cleanup method.

             Light oils are not amenable to this method as light fractions are non-persistent
             and toxic to the micro-organisms. The medium components of heavy fuel oils
             will degrade but heavy residues will be physically removed by wave action
             rather than by degradation.

             Generally, this method would only be considered for the longer term
             rehabilitation of environmentally sensitive areas where conventional cleanup
             methods cannot be applied.

8.14.2       Cutting of Oiled Vegetation

             Cutting of oiled foliage has been suggested for oiled mangroves and
             saltmarsh. This may be of benefit if the sediment is unoiled and if access to
             the swamps can be achieved without causing damage. However, some
             saltmarsh species recover slowly and damage must be balanced against the
             likely damage from the oil. This method should be used under close
             environmental supervision.

8.14.3       Burning of Oiled Vegetation and Debris

             This method has been used where the recovery of oiled debris has been
             problematic due to large volumes and/or isolation and inaccessibility of the
             shoreline.

             Light oils will evaporate and so this method is unlikely to be required.

             This method may be considered for medium oils, if unweathered. Close
             supervision is required to ensure that the method is effective and that
             operators are not damaging unoiled vegetation.

             Close supervision is required.

             Heavy oils do not burn well and generally leave a tarry residue after burning.
             This is difficult to remove and may percolate into sediments. Consequently,
             this method is not recommended for heavy oils.

8.14.4          Trenching

                This involves the digging of a trench through oiled sediment so that fluid,
                subsurface oil can leach into the trench. It may be collected from here or
                allowed to wash out naturally. This method may alter the drainage pattern
                and should not be used in vegetated areas (mangroves, saltmarsh).


8.15 ON SITE WASTE HANDLING

                Waste must be transported along the shoreline to temporary storage sites
                behind the beach.

8.15.1          On-Site Transport

                Table 8.12 lists some of the equipment available for transporting of wastes
                along shorelines and provides some handling guidelines.

8.15.2          Temporary Storage Sites

                Temporary storage sites should selected according to the following criteria:

                •   Good access from beach being cleaned.
                •   Proximity to road (for removal by truck).
                •   Flat or gently sloping ground.
                •   Ease of establishing secure perimeters (if accessible to public).
                •   Absence of native flora, heritage value or other sensitivity.

                A number of agencies or personnel may need to be consulted in the selection
                of the temporary waste storage site.

9.1 RESPONSIBILITY

             The temporary storage, transport, treatment and disposal of waste material
             must be managed so as not to inhibit cleanup activities or pose any threat to
             the environment.

             For small-scale responses the Incident Controller will deal with waste
             management.

             For larger-scale responses the IC may appoint a Waste Management
             Coordinator (WMC) to undertake the task. A Waste Management Unit may
             be required.

             For any spill likely to produce significant amounts of waste, the WMC will
             develop a Waste Management Sub-Plan.

             Note: The volumes of oily waste recovered may be significantly greater than the
             volume of oil spilled.

             It is the responsibility of the relevant IMT Officers/Coordinators to request
             assistance from the Waste Management Coordinator and to advise on the
             location and volume of waste storage required.

9.2 ON SITE (FIELD) TEMPORARY STORAGE

             Temporary storage containers and facilities may be required at:

             • Jetties, ramps or other locations where marine response teams bring
               wastes ashore.
             • Shoreline segments being cleaned.
             • Wildlife cleaning facilities.
             • Canteen and rest areas.
             • Decontamination centres and equipment cleaning sites.
             • Advanced Operations Centres.
             • Incident Control Centre.

             Guidelines for the use of storage containers is provided in Table 9.1.

9.3 WASTE MANAGEMENT SITES

             The waste management area in the Port is the nominated waste
             management site for oily wastes. This site will be used to:

             • Store collected waste (Table 9.1).
             • Undertake the final segregation of waste (Table 9.2).
             • Undertake separation or initial treatment of waste (Table 9.3).

9.4 SEGREGATION OF WASTE

                 Wherever possible wastes should be segregated in accordance with the
                 preferred segregation in Table 9.2.

                 For large spills, or those where it is not possible to effectively segregate
                 wastes in the field, the ‘field' segregations can be used.

9.5 TRANSPORT

                 Care should be taken that all vessels, vehicles, or containers used for the
                 transport of oily wastes are sealed and leak-proof.


9.6 WASTE SEPARATION

                 It may be required to separate oil from associated water, sediment and debris,
                 to minimise volumes. It is preferable that this is not attempted on the spill site.
                 Waste separation is usually undertaken offsite at a designated waste processing
                 area. If this is necessary a number of methods may be used (Table 9.3).

               TERMINATING THE RESPONSE                                              10

10.1 RESPONSIBILITY FOR TERMINATING THE RESPONSE

             The decision to terminate a response is taken by the Incident Controller in
             consultation with the APA CEO (Tier 1) or ERG or other nominated DPI
             MEPU officer or (Tier 2/3).

10.2 CONDITIONS FOR TERMINATION

             Generally, the decision to stop cleanup is made when efforts are not
             returning significant benefit. This rarely occurs at the same time for all of the
             IMT and some Units will be reduced, or demobilised, earlier than others.

10.2.1       Planning and Operations

             The size of the Planning Section will tend to decline as the Operations
             Section Units cease activity. The conditions for these are noted below.

10.2.2       Marine and Aviation Response

             These may be terminated when:

             • All oil has been recovered; or
             • The oil slick has dissipated (broken up); or
             • All oil has impacted shorelines and is unlikely to be refloated (resources may
               remain on standby until shoreline response has been terminated).
             • The oil slick is beyond the range of response options and
             • The oil slick is unlikely to return.

10.2.3       Shoreline Response

             This may be terminated when:

             • All accessible shorelines are clean (i.e. free of oil).
             • Cleanup is having no further net beneficial effect or having a deleterious
               effect on the shoreline or associated plants or animals.
             • Remaining oil is judged to be acceptable or of little or no adverse effect.

10.2.4       Wildlife

             This is decided by CALM in consultation with the IC. Wildlife response may
             continue for some time and will generally only cease when affected animals
             are cleaned and, those that can be, rehabilitated.

10.2.5       OH&S

             OH&S Unit would be demobilised as the IMT winds down although the OH&S
             function will continue under the wildlife and waste management responses if
             the activities of these Units continue.

10.2.6       Waste Management

             In a major spill the management of wastes may continue for a considerable
             time beyond the demobilisation of field operations. The responsibility for this
             would rest with the Responsible Party (RP; i.e. the spiller).

10.2.7       Logistics

             The Logistics function will continue until all equipment is recovered, cleaned
             and returned to its source.

10.2.8       Finance and Administration

             Finance and administrative personnel may continue, at a reduced level, until
             all claims are processed and costs are determined.

10.3 Stand-Down Procedures

10.3.1       Return of Equipment

             Upon completion of the response, the IC (or delegate) will:

             • Arrange recovery of all equipment, and unused materials.
             • Ensure that all equipment is cleaned.
             • Ensure that all equipment is returned to the owner.

10.3.2       Debrief

             The IC may hold a post-spill debriefing. The debrief should address:

             •   Spill causes (if known) and future prevention methods.
             •   Speed of response activation.
             •   Effectiveness or suitability of strategies, tactics and equipment.
             •   Health and Safety issues (if any).
             •   Communications.

10.3.3       Incident Report

             The BPA CEO or DPI MEPU may request the preparation of an Incident
             Report. This should follow the debrief outline or other format as specified.

12.4 COST RECOVERY

             All records of costs must be collated for submission to the relevant Insurer.

             For expenses incurred assisting third parties, costs should be submitted to
             the DPI MEPU Marine Environment Protection.

             All costs incurred in returning equipment to the owner, cleaning and servicing
             must be included in the overall schedule of costs submitted for
             reimbursement by the polluter.

A.1 FUNCTION OF OPERATING PROCEDURES

             Operating Procedures (OPs) provide guidelines and checklists for actions to
             be followed during a spill response. They are intended to be comprehensive
             and provide for more actions than are required for small-scale responses.

             Two types of OP are provided:

             •    Procedures.
             •    Key Role Checklists.

 PROCEDURE                                SITE CONTROL
   APA-C                                   PROCEDURE                                       C
   Site Control should be established for every site where access is to be controlled. This
includes the ICC, sites of shoreline cleanup, waste storage, response vessel mooring areas
                       or any site containing hazards or hazardous materials
  Task                                          Action                                 Status
 1     Identify perimeter of the “Hot” (secure or prohibited) zone. This may be:
         i     Oiled shoreline. (Note: This zone should contain all hazards and
               sensitive areas where access should be restricted).
         ii    Response vessels.
        iii    Area around the slick.
        iv     Perimeter around aircraft.
         v     ICC
 2     Identify the “Hot” zone perimeter by sign-posting or establishing a cordon
 3     Identify the “Warm”(exclusion, controlled or support) zone. (Note: This is a
       non-contaminated/ non-hazardous zone). For the above examples:
         i     Area behind beach including all areas used for support (shelter,
               canteen, WC, car park).
         ii    Jetty.
        iii    Any air space or water area established to exclude non-response
               aircraft or vessels.
        iv     The airport, or perimeter around field helipad.
         v     The building in which the ICC is situated. The car park should also be
               within this zone.
 4     Identify the “Warm” zone perimeter by sign-posting or establishing a cordon
 5     Establish any required “Hot” zone perimeter facilities. For example (i) and
       (ii) this may include:
         i     Decontamination facility (see Procedure APA-D).
         ii    Temporary waste storage.
 6     Establish “Warm” zone perimeter facilities. Generally this is site security.
 7     Establish support facilities within Warm zone as required

Note 1      Entry to a Hot Zone should be restricted to:

            •   Personnel involved in the on-site work.
            •   Personnel equipped with appropriate protective gear.
            •   Personnel who have undergone correct training and induction.

Note 2      The Warm Zone surrounds the Hot Zone and is the zone and is generally:

            • The area from which personnel and equipment are deployed.
            • The perimeter where site control is exercised i.e. the entry points to the Hot Zone.
            • Restricted to those people who operate in the Hot Zone and those who support them.

Note 3      • The Cold Zone is all public or otherwise unrestricted areas, i.e. those areas outside
              of the controlled site.

    The size and complexity of field decontamination facilities required will depend on the
     character of the oil and on the scale and nature of the cleanup being implemented.
           This procedure should be modified to meet the needs of each response.

    This procedure is for general sampling and is not a procedure for sampling vessels for
                                      prosecution purposes
     Task                                         Action                               Status
1    Establish reason for sampling and obtain any specific sampling, sample
     handling requirements or equipment requirements from the receiving
     laboratory. In particular:
      a    Number of replicate samples.
      b    Type of container.
       c   Volume of sample needed.
      d    Cooling needs and time needed to get to laboratory.
2    Sampling from the surface of water:
      a    Thin films:
              i  Use sorbent discs/pads made from glass wool, teflon (PTFE) wool
                 or stainless steel gauze.
             ii  Applied lightly to the water surface and then placed inside an
                 airtight container (see 5) for transport to the lab.
             ii  The use of synthetic sorbents is not recommended. If used, send
                 a clean sample of the sorbent to the laboratory also.
      b    Thick slicks:
              i  In the absence of specialised equipment, collect using clean
                 buckets, dustpans and wide-necked jars.
3    Sampling from solid surfaces
      a    Viscous oils and tarballs can be scraped off surfaces using clean steel
           or wooden spatulas or spoons, and placed into sample containers.
      b    Oil adhering to sediment, seaweed, small pieces of wood, plastic
           materials or other debris may be collected by placing the oil and
           substrate material, into the sample container.
       c   Note: Oil samples should not be taken by washing oil from surfaces
           and no attempt should be made to heat or melt samples taken from
           solid surfaces so as to enable them to flow into a container
4    Sampling from wildlife
      a    Cut oiled feathers of fur and place in containers.
      b    Cut unoiled feathers or fur and send for analysis also.
       c   Avoid taking samples from specimens that have been stored in plastic
           containers.
5    Place each sample into a container:
      a    Clean glass jars (150-500ml) with wide mouth should be used
      b    Caps of the glass jars or bottles should be lined with either metal foil or
           be made of teflon (PTFE)
6    Label each sample container with:
      a    Identification code or sample number.
      b    Date and time of sampling.
       c   Brief description of sample and collection point location.
           Name of person taking sample (and witness).
                                                                          Continued Overpage

           containers with tamper proof seals.
      c    For samples that may be stored for more than 24 hrs:
           To prevent biological degradation of wet samples, the addition of 1ml of
           50% hydrochloric acid per litre of water samples is recommended.
           Additionally, displacement of air from the container with nitrogen or
           carbon dioxide can help to prevent degradation of the sample.
      d    Ensure sufficient space has been allowed in the container for any
           expansion of the sample that might occur.
11   Transport samples safely. Contact aerial carrier for specific conditions.

   APA-F                    EFFECTIVENESS OF DISPERSANTS                                        F
 The following field test was developed by Dr Don Palmer of the Victorian Institute of Marine
  Science, Queenscliffe (now the Martine and Freshwater Resources Institute, Dept Natural
               Resources and Environment). It is reproduced with permission
Task                                      Action                                       Status
  1    Obtain required equipment:
       • Clean 20 - 25 ml screw top test tubes with screw cap and neutral plug.
       • Clean 1 to 2.5 ml disposable syringes with needle.
       • Various clean wide-mouth (pomade) jars for sampling in field.
       • Glass pasteur pipettes and bulbs.
       • 10 ml glass syringe with large diameter cannula tip.
  2    Place seawater (at ambient temperature of sea surface at spill scene) into test
       tube. Fill to mark or to about 2/3 tube volume.
  3    Carefully add about 1 ml oil onto surface of water in test tube using an eye
       dropper or pasteur pipette. Do not let the oil touch the sides of the tube - apply
       directly to the water surface. Note appearance of the oil’s lower and upper
       menisci (oil/air and oil/water interface). Both, but more importantly, the lower
       meniscus will be curved and the interface will have a smooth unblemished
       appearance.
  4    With the test tube slightly above eye level and using another eye dropper or
       pipette, add one to two drops only of dispersant directly onto the surface of the oil.
       Keeping the test tube very still watch the under surface of the oil very carefully for
       signs of change.
  5    Note any change to the undersurface of the oil. If the dispersant has penetrated
       and combined with the oil, the curved under surface of the oil will quickly flatten
       out and may take on a dull rough appearance to the interface. This indicates that
       the dispersant has combined with the oil and has lowered its surface tension.
       There may be evidence of a clear liquid emanating from the underside of the oil
       suggesting that the dispersant has not combined well and has passed through the
       oil into the water.
  6    Carefully screw the cap onto the top of the test tube. Examine the underside
       surface of the oil again for signs of wisps of oil breaking away from the underside
       of the “slick” and entering the water.
  7    In a smooth and steady manner, invert the test tube 180o and back to the upright
       position once every six cycles. Note the appearance of the oil.
         a     Has it entered the water?
         b     Are small particles visible and can light penetrate through the water/oil
               suspension?
         c     Has the water gone cloudy and opaque?
         d     Is the oil still on the surface of the water or has it taken the form of large
               particles on or near the surface?
       If the oil has entered the water as an opaque brown coloured (but not white) cloud,
       the dispersant has been effective.
  8    Place the test tube in an upright position and leave it to settle for five minutes.
       After five minutes, examine the test tube to see how much of the oil has returned
       to the surface. If the water is still cloudy, the dispersant has been very effective
       and the spilled oil is definitely amenable to treatment with the test dispersant.

                   Arrangements may be made with AMSA, EPG for model output to be sent, (via
                   facsimile or e-mail) to the ICC, or other location, at regular intervals.

                   Caution: Like all models, the output is a prediction only and is not a
                   substitute for field observations.
Oil Spill          The trajectory of a spill can be roughly calculated by adding the surface current
                   velocity to 3% of the wind velocity. This is done using a “vector diagram” (see
Trajectory
                   OSCP Section 6).

D.1 THE NEED FOR DOCUMENTATION

             It is important that information generated and distributed for spill response
             preparedness, and during a spill response, is accurately recorded,
             transmitted, acted upon and, ultimately, stored for future use.

D.2 INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM FORMS

             These are designed for use during a spill response. The IMT Forms support
             the ICS procedures outlined in WestPlan-MOP. Table D.1 lists the IMT
             Forms available in the WestPlan-MOP and their use.

             In a small response (e.g. a Tier 1 or lower Tier 2) only a few of these will be
             required. In a larger (upper Tier 2 or tier 3) or more prolonged response more
             documentation may be required.

D.2.1        Tracking Incident Management Forms

             All forms used during an incident should be given a Reference Number.

             Completed forms should be numbered with an alpha-numeric Reference
             Number showing source and number, e.g. IC/ 03 denotes the third form
             issued by the Incident Controller.

D.2.2        Supplied Forms

             POLREP, SITREP and Log Forms are supplied in hard copy at the end of this
             Appendix. All other forms are available, in digital form, on the WestPlan-MOP
             CD.
