The paper is presenting outlines of an Oil Spill Response Plan (OSRP) for a crude oil pipeline with onshore and offshore facilities. The methodology of preparing an OSRP plan is introduced in detail; however a case or numerical example is not presented. The methodology is not aimed at a specific crude oil pipeline, and the directions in the paper can be applied any pipeline. A structured tool for designing OSRP is introduced in detail.
