SEACOR Response Ltd., a global provider of emergency preparedness and response solutions, Alpha Briggs Mediterranean Ltd, a provider of oil spill services based in Malta, and OSRA Greece Ltd, a company registered in Greece to provide oil spill services to the region, announced today that they have implemented a joint agreement to provide supplementary resources in the event of an oil spill incident in the Mediterranean Sea region. The agreement allows the parties to access the equipment and personnel response resources of the partners under a pre-agreed arrangement in the event of an incident in the region.
"This agreement allows the parties to cost-effectively provide greater response capacity for their respective clients in the region," said Neil Challis, President of SEACOR Response. Paul Pisani, Commercial and Operations Director of Alpha Briggs, added, "The combination of the regional oil spill and salvage strengths of Alpha Briggs and OSRA Greece and the international response capability of SEACOR Response provides for a very robust industry-led capability in the region." Paul Xiradakis, Operations Director of OSRA Greece, commented, "Networking the regional resources of our Group with those of SEACOR Response was a wise decision, and the only way that may effectively guarantee a professional response mechanism to the oil and gas and shipping industries."
