Relocation of Oil Spill Response Vessel

Tuesday, July 27, 1999
The Marine Spill Response Corp. (MSRC), the country's largest oil spill response organization, will relocate one of its 210 ft. oil spill response vessels (OSRV) to Pascagoula, Miss. MSRC has 16 OSRVs positioned along the coastline of the continental U.S., Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The relocated vessel will be strategically placed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and wil provide enhanced coverage in an area where increasing industry activity is occuring, particularly with respect to deepwater oil exploration and production. The OSRV will be relocated from Corpus Christi, Texas. MSRC will maintain a skimming barge and significant amounts of other response equipment in Corpus Christi, which will exceed all levels of applicable Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO) classification for that area.
