The International Maritime Organization (IMO) conducted an IMO regional workshop in Pulau Indah, Malaysia (2-6 July) to help countries in South East Asia become more familiar with the ASEAN Regional Oil Spill Contingency Plan.
The plan involving ASEAN members is designed to enhance cooperation between states, namely Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore.
Participants reviewed a number of aspects of the plan and exercised its communication procedures during the regional workshop.
“IMO has long supported regional cooperation and capacity building in oil spill preparedness and response, including through a joint project with the oil and gas industry – the Global Initiative project for South East Asia (GI SEA),” it says.
“The workshop is being carried out under IMO’s Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme and hosted by the Government of Malaysia and the Marine Department of Malaysia, at the Maritime Transport Training Institute.”
IMO is represented by Josephine Uranza, the Organization’s Regional Coordinator for the Asia and Pacific Sector.
Expert support comes from Petronas, Petroleum Industry of Malaysia Mutual Aid Group, International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation Limited, Oil Spill Response Limited and the GI SEA Project.
