1 OVERVIEW ON NOSDCP

2 NATIONAL OIL SPILL DISASTER CONTINGENCY PLAN DELINEATES THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF VARIOUS RESOURCE AND OIL HANDLING AGENCIES. PROVIDES THE NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE SYSTEM BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RESOURCES FOR RESPONSE TO OIL SPILL EMERGENCIES AT SEA. NOSDCP FORMS UMBRELLA PLAN. MAINTAINING OF RESOURCES BY INDIAN COAST GUARD ALONE IS NOT A COST EFFECTIVE MEASURE MOST ECONOMICAL SOLUTION IS ACHIEVED THROUGH POOLING IN OF RESOURCES AND INTEGRATING THE CAPABILITY

3 COAST GUARD EFFORTS SINCE FORMALISING NOSDCP IN 1996, COAST GUARD HAS BEEN VERY PERSISTENT IN ENDORSING TWO PREVENTIVE MEASURES. ESTABLISHING CONTINGENCY PLAN AND MAINTENANCE OF TIER-I POLLUTION RESPONSE CAPABILITY. THE PROGRESS OF IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LATTER PREVENTIVE MEASURES HAS BEEN VERY SLOW FOR PORTS AND COASTAL STATE GOVERNMENTS TOTAL ENVIRONMENT SECURITY INVOLVES POLLUTION BY OTHER SUBSTANCES THAN OIL. OTHER POLLUTION THREATS WHICH ARE KNOCKING ON OUR DOORS ARE – HAZARDOUS AND NOXIOUS SUBSTANCE (HNS) POLLUTION – MONITORING OF TRANS BOUNDARY MOVEMENT OF TOXIC WASTES – POLLUTION FROM OFFSHORE EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES – POLLUTION FROM LAND BASED RESOURCES – MARINE GARBAGE – DISCHARGE OF SEWAGE – BALLAST WATER MANAGEMENT AND – BIO POLLUTION OF THE OCEANS

4 NOS-DCP PREPAREDNESS COUNTRY’S DEPENDENCE ON OIL WILL CONTINUE IN FUTURE. MOVEMENT OF TANKERS IS BOUND TO INCREASE ACCORDINGLY COAST GUARD ENDEAVOUR IS TO ENSURE THAT MARINE ENVIRONMENT IS PROTECTED AT ALL TIMES FROM ALL SOURCES OF POLLUTION AND REQUIRE SUPPORT FROM OTHER REGULATORY BODIES AND STAKEHOLDERS NO OIL SPILL REPORTED IN INDIAN WATERS SINCE LAST NOSDCP MEETING

5 OIL SPILL IN EAST AUSTRALIA COAST

6 OIL SPILL IN EAST AUSTRALIA COAST 4O TONS OF SPILL AFFECTED 80 KM BEACHES

7 NOS-DCP PREPAREDNESS RECENT WORLDWIDE TRENDS INDICATE – OIL POLLUTION INCIDENT AT PORTS HAS HIGH PROBABILITY OIL SPILL AT MAJOR PORTS LOCATED NEAR METROPOLITIAN CITIES WILL ADVERSELY AFFECT OTHER SEA RELATED ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL ACTIVITY. MEASURES BEING CONSIDERED ALONGWITH DG SHIPPING FOR AUGMENTING CAPACITY OF – EMERGENCY TOWING VESSEL – TRANSFER OF FUEL FROM STRANDED VESSEL – OIL SPILL RESPONSE IN PORT AREAS THROUGH SPECIALISED VESSELS WITH MHA – FUNDING FOR ESTABLISHING TIER-III CAPABILITIES

8 NOS-DCP PREPAREDNESS THE DECISIONS IMPLEMENTED SINCE THE LAST NOSDCP MEETING – CONDUCT OF NATIONAL LEVEL POLLUTION RESPONSE EXERCISE NATPOLREX-09 OFF MUMBAI. – FORMATION OF MULTI-AGENCY STUDY TEAM FOR OIL SPILL DISPERSANT APPLICATION AT NIO GOA. – COORDINATION FOR CONDUCT OF IMO LEVEL II TRAINING – AT GOA AND NEXT IMO LEVEL II TRAINING SCHEDULED AT CHENNAI IN JUL 09. – CONSTITUTION OF ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION AWARD – THE DRAFT GUIDELINES HAVE BEEN PREPARED AND CIRCULATED TO ALL CONCERNED.

9 JOINT INSPECTION MAJOR STEP INSTITUTED SINCE THE NINTH NOSDCP MEETING. PROVED TO BE AN EFFECTIVE MEASURE IN MAKING THE PORTS AND OIL COMPANIES FOR SAFE HANDLING OF OIL CARGO. CONDUCT OF OIL SPILL MOCK EXERCISES AND DRILLS IN ACCORDANCE TO CONTINGENCY PLANS. MANDATORY REQUIREMENT TO BE MET BY PORTS AND OIL HANDLING COMPANIES FOR A MAXIMUM LIMIT OF 700 TONS AND EQUIPMENT SELECTION SHOULD BE BASED ON LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.

10 SHORELINE - RESPONSE PREPAREDNESS BASIC PREPARATORY MEASURES ARE TO BE MADE BY THE AGENCIES OF THE STATE GOVT. SHORELINE PROTECTION FALLS UNDER THE STATE GOVT JURISDICTION AND ANY OIL SPILL PROTECTION MEASURES CAN BE CLAIMED FROM THE POLLUTER. STATE GOVTs ARE THE SOLE CLAIMANTS FOR COMPENSATION IN THE EVENT OF OIL POLLUTION DAMAGE TO SHORELINES. SPILL RESPONSE INVENTORY OF ICG AND RESOURCE AGENCIES HAS LIMITED SCOPE FOR SHORELINE PROTECTION. STATE GOVERNMENTS TO FORWARD THE DRAFT CONTINGENCY PLAN TEMPLATES TO THE COAST GUARD FOR FURTHER CONSOLIDATION AND OPERATIONALISATION OF THE PLAN.

11 POLLUTION CONTROL BOARDS THE ROLE OF CENTRAL AND STATE POLLUTION CONTROL BOARDS FOR MARINE ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION SHOULD BE SPELT OUT CLEARLY THE LAND BASED OIL EFFLUENT ALSO FORMS A MAJOR INPUT TO MARINE POLLUTION SPCB AND MOEF WHILE PREPARING THE ENVIRONMENT IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA) FOR PORTS AND OIL INDUSTRIES ARE TO CATER FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF OIL OR OTHER MARINE POLLUTANT INPUT TO THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT

12 OIL SPILL RESPONSE EXERCISE ICG HAS PROMULGATED NEW OIL SPILL RESPONSE EXECISE GUIDELINES (OSREG) GUIDELINES ESTABLISHED TO TEST PREPARATORY LEVEL OF RESOURCE AGENCIES IN ACCORDANCE TO SECTION 20 OF NOSDCP. THE OSREG GENERALLY PROVIDE GUIDELINES FOR THE PORTS AND OIL HANDLING COMPANIES TO UNDERTAKE DRILLS AND EXERCISES IN AN ORGANISED MANNER AND THE COAST GUARD TO CARRY OUT THE SUPERVISORY ROLES. THE EQUIPMENT MOBILISATION AND DISPLAY OF OIL RECOVERY METHODS BY PORTS HAS BEEN FAR FROM SATISFACTORY.

13 OIL SPILL RESPONSE EXERCISE CONDUCTED SINCE OCT 08 VISAKHAPATNAM – MAR 09 KOCHI – FEB 09 PARADIP – DEC 08 MUMBAI – APR 09 GOA – NOV 08 CHENNAI- JAN 09 PORT BLAIR – MAR 09 VADINAR – NOV 08

14 PRT (E) IMPARTED TRAINING TO 36 RESOURCE AGENCIES PERSONNEL PRT (W) IMPARTED TRAINING TO 34 RESOURCE AGENCIES PERSONNEL PRT (A&N) IMPARTED TRAINING TO 14 RESOURCE AGENCIES PERSONNEL IMO LEVEL-2 PR TRAINING SCHEDULED IN JUL 09 AT CHENNAI TRAINING

15 RESPONSE OF RESOURCE AGENCIES MAJOR ISSUES PENDING FROM PREVIOUS MEETING – ESTABLISHMENT OF TIER-I OIL SPILL RESPONSE CAPABILITY PORTS AND BY OIL HANDLING AGENCIES – ROLE OF STATE POLLUTION CONTROL BOARDS AND PREPARATION OF LOCAL CONTINGENCY PLANS – POLLUTION RESPONSE VESSEL FOR MAJOR PORTS – OIL SPILL RESPONSE CENTRE AT GULF OF KUTCH – OIL SPILL RESPONSE FOR NEW PORTS – EMERGENCY TOWING VESSELS – USE OF POLLUTION CESS – POOR PARTICIPATION IN NATPOLREX – DEPLOYMENT OF POLLUTION RESPONSE EQUIPMENT DURING NATPOLREX

16 FUTURE PLANS ICG PLANS TO INCREASE ITS CAPABILITY FROM TIER-II TO TIER-III BASED ON SUPPORT AVAILABLE THROUGH INTEGRATION OF RESOURCES AND TRAINED MANPOWER OF RESOURCE AGENCIES. INTEGRATION OF CONTINGENCY PLANS IN A SINGLE PLATFORM AND DATA ON SENSTIVITY AND OIL SPILL MOVEMENT PREDICTION THROUGH A CENTRALISED SOFTWARE DATABASE MANAGEMENT OF RESOURCES AND SKILLED MANPOWER

17 PRESENTATIONS “DE-BRIEF ON NATPOLREX-09” – BY DY COMDT A MEHROTRA, PRT(WEST). PRESENTATION ON “OIL POLLUTION LEGISLATION AND COMPENSATION” – BY CAPT DEEPAK KAPOOR, NAUTICAL SURVEYOR, DG SHIPPING PRESENTATION ON “OIL SPILL RISK ASSESSMENT AND CONTINGENCY PLANNING PROCESS AND THE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY”- BY DR SP FONDEKAR, NIO AND DR GS REDDY, ENVIRON SOFTWARE.
