Are the response vessels listed in the Geographic-Specific Appendix (GSA) for each COTP zone contractually-obligated to respond at the time of an incident?
All of our response vessels in the continental U.S. are contractually bound to respond immediately and we’ll show you the contracts that say so. It’s your legal and fiduciary responsibility to ensure by contract that the resources are available to respond.
Since every minute counts when an incident occurs offshore with lives and the environment at risk, in what state of readiness are your response resources, equipment and personnel?
We have planned and tested that all of our response vessels are maintained and operational 24/7, can be refueled within the hour, and built for fast response with an average cruising speed of 20 knots. All of our boat operators are properly licensed with offshore mariner licenses and have years of experience who work 24/7 in all types of weather and sea state conditions year-round.
Have you reviewed the contracts and subcontracts to ensure there are established, agreed upon fees, terms and conditions for your response resources in the event of an offshore incident?
We provide simple clear understanding of fees for services and responsibilities in our contracts so you won’t be overcharged by being caught off guard negotiating in the 11th hour.
