Spill Prevention

Preventing releases of oil and gas to the environment is of the utmost importance. While Marathon Oil’s focus is on preventing spills from occurring, we strive to prevent any incidents from impacting the environment. Marathon Oil devotes significant resources to employee training, procedures, preventive maintenance, equipment inspections and mechanical safeguards to prevent spills and releases. We periodically update our storm water and spill prevention, control and countermeasure plans to ensure compliance and continuous improvement.

We evaluate the actual and potential spill severity to drive our investigation of spills and discharges and identify their causes. We take incident-specific actions and, if necessary, broad corrective actions including remediation.
