T&T BISSO announced an exclusive cooperative services agreement with Cook Inlet Spill Prevention and Response (CISPRI). Based in Nikiski, Alaska, CISPRI is a comprehensive standby oil spill response cooperative whose mission is to provide immediate response capability to its member companies. The agreement provides a unique platform for OPA 90 related salvage, emergency lightering, firefighting and oil spill response services in Alaskan waters and further strengthens the planning and response posture for tankers and non-tank vessels operating in the area.

In 2009, T&T Bisso deployed and permanently stationed emergency response resources with CISPRI to serve the Cook Inlet and Alaska areas and participated in equipment deployment exercises in Kachemak Bay to demonstrate response capabilities. T&T Bisso was the first OPA 90 salvage and marine firefighting provider to receive United States Coast Guard approval of its primary resource provider agreement.
