FOSC Dispersant Standard Conditions Checklist

This checklist is to be completed for Case-by-Case decision areas and Pre-Authorized areas.


The purpose of this checklist is to provide confirmation to the RRT from the FOSC/UC about standard procedures and other activities that will take place or be initiated before a dispersant spray operation would take place.  This information is to help inform the RRT, to provide information on conditions that must and will be met by the FOSC/UC before a spray operation would commence. Additional information may be added to this checklist as appropriate or applicable for the RRT.

Dispersability: Available technical information or experience suggests that the spilled product is dispersible and will likely still be dispersible in the time frame of anticipated application of dispersants.


National Contingency Plan (NCP) Listed Dispersant: Dispersant to be used is listed on current NCP Product Schedule; considered appropriate for oil type and conditions.


Operational Considerations – Summary Statements:

  1. Weather Conditions: Weather and sea conditions are conducive to dispersant application by chosen system or platform. Forecast attached.

  2. General Adequacy of Dispersant Spray System and Personnel Competency: equipment is purpose-built, tested, and appropriate to spill conditions; personnel are trained and experienced.

  3. Application Control:  Dispersant operation provides reasonable control over the spray zone able to effectively direct the dispersant platform in carrying out the dispersant operation, including the avoidance of wildlife that may be in the area. Droplet sizes meet ASTM guidelines.


SMART (Special Monitoring of Applied Response Technologies): Appropriately trained responders have been mobilized and will be deployed prior to dispersant application, minimum of Tier I.


Wildlife Observation: An aerial wildlife surveillance specialist(s), designated by appropriate Trustee agency(s), is available to observe wildlife that should be avoided in the potential dispersant application area and will document any observed impacts.


Endangered Species Act and Essential Fish Habitat Consultations:

Have been initiated in accordance with applicable guidance. Guidelines/conservation measures/BMPs will be incorporated into operational plans as appropriate.


Consultations with Tribes, local government and other key stakeholders: (including National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 if applicable)  Have been initiated in accordance with applicable guidance and have been communicated to UC and incorporated into recommendations.


Safety and Comms Plan: A thorough, specific Dispersant Ops Safety and Comms Plans have been/will be completed prior to any dispersant test or application.
