press release
Friday, January 20, 2012

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation has signed agreements with the Marine Preservation Association (MPA) and the Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) to access MSRC’s national and Gulf of Mexico-based dedicated spill response resources for plan citation and spill response services.

 

Anadarko joins other MPA founding members BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Murphy, and Shell; and newer members Nexen, Noble, and Statoil, in funding the most extensive surface spill response capability in the Gulf of Mexico. MSRC has just completed a large expansion of its resources and capability in the Gulf of Mexico, with particular focus on the deepwater. This expansion, called Deep Blue, will continue to ensure that MPA members will have the highest level of response readiness and response resources in the Gulf of Mexico. According to MSRC President and CEO, Steve Benz, “Anadarko is a recognized major participant in the deepwater arena. Their decision to have direct access to MSRC capabilities reinforces the strategies of MPA and MSRC to enhance our capability in the Gulf.”


“MPA, on behalf of its more than 140 member companies, welcomes Anadarko to the growing list of offshore operators who have joined for access to Deep Blue resources. Anadarko’s decision validates the commitment by MPA Member companies to fund the enhancements to MSRC’s capability in advance of regulatory action by the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement,” said MPA President and CEO, Brett Drewry. Anadarko Director of Environment, Health and Safety, David McBride added, “Safety and protection of the environment are top priorities for us, and this partnership with others in our industry through the MPA and MSRC adds another layer of protection to our ongoing focus on prevention.”


MSRC is the largest standby oil spill and emergency response company in the United States. It was founded in 1990 as a not-for-profit entity and is solely funded by the Marine Preservation Association (MPA). Anadarko Petroleum Corporation's mission is to deliver a competitive and sustainable rate of return to shareholders by exploring for, acquiring and developing oil and natural gas resources vital to the world's health and welfare. As of year-end 2010, the company had approximately 2.42 billion barrels-equivalent of proved reserves, making it one of the world's largest independent exploration and production companies. www.anadarko.com.
