Disposal of PAJ's Oil Spill Equipment


April 2014


Petroleum Association of Japan (PAJ) has decided to dispose some of the oil spill response equipment that were acquired in the programme of PAJ's “Major Oil Spill Response Programme”.
These equipment has been replaced with the new or alternative ones.


Oil spill response programme in PAJ is based on the following principle: “PAJ will lend the equipment in the event of a major oil spill incident to the parties concerned with free of charge. After the use, borrowers shall clean, check and repair them at borrower's expense and return to PAJ base.”


But, there is a possibility that the aged equipment breaks down or that it cannot be used well in the emergency due to the decrease in strength and the processing performance, etc., or it might cost a lot for borrowers from the viewpoint of repair obligation.


These skimmers or oil booms were purchased in the FY 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2001. But, PAJ believes these equipment still can be used in normal operation or training purpose with necessary maintenance and repair. This is the reason that PAJ will seek the applicants to purchase them.
