Oil Spill Response Plans (OSRPs) for Crude by Rail

To address public concerns surrounding the transportation of crude oil by rail across state boundaries, the federal Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration (PHMSA) is responsible for developing new regulations regarding Oil Spill Response Plans (OSRPs).

PHMSA regulations (40 CFR 130.31) currently require basic OSRPs for containers carrying more than 3,500 gallons of crude oil. The new regulations (40 CFR 130.103 et seq.) will require comprehensive plans for many trains where only basic plans were previously needed.

Antea®Group assists railroads with the development of comprehensive OSRPs, training, documentation and recordkeeping to meet the latest standards.
