Eni Norge’s contingency organisation has been established to deal effectively with hazardous situations and events, and to provide support and resources to both the personnel involved and the location where the situation has arisen. Our contingency organisation shall also take Eni Norge’s responsibilities as Operator into account.
The contingency organisation is run from Eni Norge's Operations Centre located at our head office at Forus near Stavanger.
In a crisis situation, activities will be coordinated from here. The key functions that take place in the contingency operations room are as follows: Task force leadership, HSE-related tasks, logistics, media relations, IT, and communication with the authorities, response personnel and next of kin. The support organisation will be located at other sites.
Eni Norge’s land-based contingency organisation is responsible for the following:
- To procure additional resources such as support vessels, rescue helicopters, etc., in order to deal with a hazardous event or accident
- To implement emergency oil spill contingency measures
- To notify the authorities
- To inform next of kin and relevant clients
- To provide support, assistance and resources to evacuated personnel and next of kin
- To update the media and Eni employees with relevant information
In the event of an oil spill
If an incident requires that we must put our emergency contingency measures into operation, Eni Norge will notify NOFO in order to mobilise essential resources. Eni Norge has overall responsibility for combating the spill, while NOFO is responsible for tactical and operational management of the contingency resources employed. NOFO’s resources include five oil spill contingency bases for equipment and personnel.
