  1. MARPOL Annex IRegulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil an introduction to the international regulations for the prevention of pollution by oil Tim Wilkins Regional Manager Asia-Pacific Environmental Manager Image courtesy of Dampskibsselskabet NORDEN AS

  2. MARPOL • Annex I • Regulations and Chapters • Fundamentals • Operation • Construction

  3. 1. MARPOL Torrey Canyon 1967 • 1959 US built, 60,000 dwt, , Li. flagged • Jumboised to 120,000 dwt • Cargo 120,000 ts of BP oil for Milford Haven • Navigational error caused grounding ripping open 6 tanks • 31,000,000 gallons of oil leaked • Oil spread along the sea between England and France

  4. 1. MARPOL Amoco Cadiz 1978 • 1974 built Amoco Cadiz carrying 227,000 tonnes of crude oil • ran aground off the coast of Brittany, France at 10:00 p.m. on March 16, 1978 • The whole cargo spilled out as the breakers spilt the vessel in two, progressively polluting 360 km of shoreline • At the time this was the largest oil spill by tanker ever registered.

  5. 1. MARPOL The International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) • as amended by the 1978 Protocol (MARPOL 73/78) Just Oil… • 1954 OILPOL Convention • Operational • Discharge zones (50nm and 100ppm) • Reception facilities

  6. 1. MARPOL Not just Oil… MARPOL Annexes I – VI • Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Oil • Regulations for the Control of Pollution by Noxious Liquid Substances in Bulk • Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Harmful Substances Carried by Sea in Packaged Form • Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Sewage from Ships • Regulations for the Prevention of Pollution by Garbage from Ships • Regulations for the Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships

  7. 1. MARPOL MARPOL Implementation • 1967 Torrey Canyon • 1973-1978 Amoco Cadiz et al. • MARPOL ’73 and the Protocol ‘78 • MARPOL enters into force October 1983 • Annex I and II - 1983 • Annex III – 1992 • Annex V – 1988 • Annex IV – 2003 • Annex VI - 2005

  8. 2. Annex I regulations and chapters 39 regulations in 7 chapters to regulate oil pollution from ships (not just tankers): • Ship/Tanker design • Ship/Tanker operation

  9. 2. Annex I regulations and chapters 39 regulations in 7 chapters to regulate oil pollution from ships (not just tankers):

  10. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Discharge of oil at sea (1): all discharges of oil are prohibited unless certain criteria are satisfied • Machinery space (bilge and sludge) • All ship types • Machinery space • Bilge waste: oily water from the bilges • Sludge: waste residue from the filtration of fuel oil • Ship must be en route • Oily mixture must have been processed through the oil filtering equipment • Oil content of the mixture does not exceed 15 parts per million (ppm) • Oily mixture is not mixed with cargo residues (see later)

  11. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Discharge of oil at sea (2): all discharges of oil are prohibited unless certain criteria are satisfied • Cargo space (slops) • Oil tankers • Must be more than 50nm from nearest land (also defined) • 30 litres per nautical mile • Discharged through the Oil Discharge Monitoring Equipment (ODME) • Maximum discharge quantity on a ballast voyage should not exceed 1/30,000 of the total quantity of the particular cargo of which the residue formed a part

  12. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Discharge of oil at sea (3): all discharges of oil are prohibited unless certain criteria are satisfied Oil discharge monitoring and control systems (tankers) Regulations 31 & 32 Oil filter equipment (all ship types) Regulation 14 • Oil Discharge Monitoring Equipment (ODME) • Oily Water Separators (OWS) Extensive review of requirements underway at IMO

  13. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Special Areas (1): • All the previous discharge criteria regulates outside a Special Area • Regulation 1 - “A Special Area is a sea area where for recognized technical reasons in relation to oceanographic and ecological condition and to the particular character of its traffic…special mandatory methods for the prevention of sea pollution by [oil] is required.” • And as such there shall be NO discharge whatsoever of cargo residues/slops from oil tankers

  14. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Special Areas (2): those listed in Annex I: • Baltic Sea 1983 • Black Sea 1983 • Red Sea not in effect • Mediterranean Sea 1983 • Gulf of Aden not in effect • Antarctic 1992 • Gulfs area Aug 2008 • Northwest European waters 1999 • Southern South African waters Aug 2008 • Oman area of the Arabian Sea not in effect

  15. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Operation Reception facilities: Regulation 38 Oil loading terminals, repair ports and ports in which ships have oily residues to discharge • Port state obligation • Alleged inadequacies

  16. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Construction Tank (ship) construction: How many hulls…

  28. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Miscellaneous Other key elements to MARPOL Annex I: • Oil Record Book (ORB) • Regulation 17 and Appendix III • Part 1: Machinery space operations • Part 2: Cargo space operations • Crude Oil Washing (COW) • Fuel tank protection – all ships 2010 • Pump room protection – double bottom in tankers after 1/1/2007 • Oil outflow performance in case of accident – collision or grounding

  29. 2. Annex I fundamentals; Miscellaneous Other key elements to MARPOL\Annex I: • FPSOs/FSUs • FPSOs and FSUs are not oil tankers and are not to be used for the transport of oil except that, with the specific agreement by the flag and relevant coastal States on a voyage basis, • Conversion of an oil tanker to an FPSO or FSU or vice versa should not be construed as a major conversion as defined in regulation 1(8) • There are five categories of discharges that may be associated with the operation of an FPSO or FSU: • machinery space drainage; • offshore processing drainage; • production water discharge; • displacement water discharge; and • contaminated seawater from operational purposes such as produced oil tank cleaning water, produced oil tank hydrostatic testing water, water from ballasting of produced oil tank to carry out inspection by rafting.
