Thick jungle. Tribal warfare. And a 700km pipeline with no access roads. Nothing SpillPro couldn't handle.
What SpillPro did
SpillPro supplied ExxonMobil PNG with both tyre and track type ATVs. This meant people and oil spill equipment could be transported through the challenging terrain.
The ATVs needed a large payload for transporting heavy duty equipment like booms, power packs. To comply with safety regulations, the vehicles also required roll bars, head supports and personal restraints. This meant modifying our Kubota ATVs prior to delivery.
SpillPro commissioned the ATVs in the heavily fortified Hides Camp. This allowed protection from the tribal war being fought in the area.
SpillPro then fully trained the ExxonMobil PNG crew in the correct use of these vehicles.
Benefits to ExxonMobil PNG
- Can respond quickly to pipeline spills
- Service spills in remote areas
- Reduce potential effects of spills on environment
- Save time and money – no need to transport spill equipment on ad-hoc basis
“With the equipment that SpillPro has supplied us, we are confident we can handle any emergency spill that occurs in any part of our pipeline from Hides in the north to the LNG Plant on the coast.”
