AWE Prosecuted for Oil Discharge
AWE, operator of the Tui oil project in New Zealand and its major contractual partner and owner/operator of the FPSO Umuroa, Prosafe Production, have been charged by Maritime New Zealand over the accidental oil discharge from the offshore production vessel, Umuroa, in October last year.
AWE takes its environmental and regulatory responsibilities very seriously and aims, always, to be a good corporate citizen.
Since the incident AWE and Prosafe Production have expended every effort to prevent a reoccurrence through the introduction of improved operational and management practices and procedures.
Furthermore AWE has worked closely with Maritime New Zealand, all local authorities and the community, towards the restoration of the foreshore area affected by the spill.
AWE's commitment to safety, environmental responsibility and good corporate citizenship remain primary objectives in everything the company does.
AWE deeply regrets the Umuroa incident and will accept any penalties imposed as a result of the Umuroa incident while striving to prevent reoccurrence.
