Testing national tactical response
Woodside participated in exercise Westwind, a National Level 3 Oil Spill Exercise that tested the National Plan for Maritime Environmental Emergencies arrangements for the oil and gas industry.
Tactical deployment of personnel and equipment in aerial surveillance, aerial dispersant application, offshore, nearshore and shoreline response, and oiled wildlife response was deployed from the Forward Operating Base (FOB) in Exmouth. Woodside worked with the Exmouth community in preparation for the exercise Westwind.
Woodside's involvement in the exercise included provision of response participants both within the Incident Management Team and the FOB, and also use of the company's mobile communications system for communications in remote locations.
