MTSC Completes 4th Quarter Exercise For Its Waterborne Industry Spill Equipment Contract

Malayan Towage and Salvage Corporation (MTSC) and the Philippine Institute of Petroleum (PIP) members completed the fourth and final Waterborne Industry Spill Equipment oil spill response exercise for 2019 in Sasa, Davao (Davao City).  Attended by WISE stake holders (Petron, Chevron, Shell, Total, PTT, and Isla Petroleum) and local government regulatory bodies, including Philippine Coast Guard, the exercise comprised of a table-top session with group exercises in spill management and a drill in which MTSC deployed it oil spill response equipment.

MTSC is the sole contractor for WISE Philippines and has oil spill response hubs in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao so it can respond to a Tier 2 spill (1000cubic meters) by any of the PIP members. MTSC holds four practical spill drills each year in each Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao with the PIP members and MTSC personnel and equipment.
